Star class hotel WORK has started on the new $30 million Novotel hotel in Albury. To be managed by the Accor Hotel Group, it will deliver the city’s newest internationally branded hotel since the 1970s. The Smollett Street development is expected to create more than 200 construction jobs and 30 permanent jobs when it becomes fully operational in 2015. The hotel, located in the heart of Albury CBD, will feature 120 rooms for accommodation over seven floors and include two themed food and beverage areas, four banquet and events spaces and a gymnasium and corporate lounge. Accor Pacific chief operating officer Simon McGrath said the group was delighted to be introducing its international Novotel brand to Albury with a four-and-a-half star hotel in the heart of the city’s retail and commercial precinct. “Through the vision and support from the Albury City Council, the arrival of Novotel into Albury signals a growing confidence in the domestic market and will no doubt

strengthen the city’s ability to host large conferences and events,” Mr McGrath said. “We believe the exceptional design and location of the Novotel Albury will appeal to both the corporate and leisure travel markets and we’re looking forward to welcoming our first guests in 2015.” Albury City mayor Kevin Mack said construction would be a huge achievement for the Volt Lane development and will be a great development for the city. “Attracting development and investment in Albury is a major focus for council and construction of this new hotel is further proof that our work is delivering results,” he said. “This is going to be a key driver of employment and economic development in the city and will be welcomed by residents and visitors. “Tourism is worth up to $525 million to Albury’s economy.” The new Novotel Albury will join the brand’s established global network of nearly 400 hotels and resorts in 60 countries. The water wheel will be kept in storage until a suitable home is found for it.

THE iconic Australia Park water wheel has been removed. Contractors and council staff were on site last morning to begin the removal, with a handful of people including the media looking on. Albury Mayor Kevin Mack said the council was continuing discussions with interested parties to locate a suitable home for the water wheel, which was donated to Albury from the Mitta Valley in the 1960s.

Council agreed at its December meeting to use its Acquisition and DeAccession Policy to re-home the water wheel. Through the process, the water wheel has been offered to the family of the original owners and other bodies or institutions who may have an interest in owning the wheel. Discussions with interested parties are continuing. The wheel will be placed in safe storage until discussions are finalised.

“It would be great to see the wheel returned to its original home,” he said. “We’re in discussions with a number of parties and hope to find a suitable home in the next few months.” A recent structural assessment of the wheel found that it had become structurally unsound and contained both lead and potentially asbestosbased paints. Preliminary estimates put repair and re-creation costs at more than $90,000.

Wailing over brutal whaling By KRYSTEN MANUEL AFTER a long battle against wildlife mutilators in the Yackandandah forest, local woman Wyanda Lublink has taken her fight to the sea. Since the film The Cove was released in 2009, many more people are aware of the ‘cultural’ slaughter of dolphins and whales in Taiji. Gruesome footage has been plastered across YouTube depicting all kinds of barbaric practices including dolphins having their spines severed, throats slit and even being dragged behind cars while still alive. The sea of Taiji is a foul blood red for half the year, and Wyanda has had enough. Having left six months ago, Wyanda has joined the world renowned Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and worked tirelessly on the Sam Simon to interrupt and ultimately stop Japanese whalers. “At the moment all is quiet on board,” she wrote to her friend Gary Heywood a fortnight ago. “We are still heading south and hopefully

soon we will be able to disrupt the whaling once again and maybe then the whaling fleet will give up and go home. “There are only a few weeks left in the whaling season, so please pray for the weather to be really bad (they cannot whale in bad weather) and pray they will leave soon!” Meanwhile, back on the Border, Gary is doing all he can to both educate and encourage locals to support Wyanda’s mission in any and every way. “Wyanda has always been passionate about saving wildlife and creatures of the sea, being a voice for them,” he said. “They’re (whalers) doing it for the money, it’s not a cultural thing any more. They used to use canoes and spears where they didn’t have sonar and radar and speed boats and all these kinds of things. “But this particular kind of killing really took off in 1969. “It was a dark secret - what else they were doing to them. They were killing whole pods, whole generations of dolphins and whales that knew the migratory route. “The whalers have to go many kilometres out with the banger boats and they bang these boats with metal poles which dolphins are terrified of, it ruins their sonar and so they flee. The boats all gather around and herd them into the cove, they pull the net over and drag them to shallow water, and then they start to slaughter them. “With the whales they are harpooned anywhere in the body and they die a horrible slow death. “When they kill the dolphins they used to spear them until they bleed out. Now they put a knife behind the blow-hole a few times to sever the spine but it doesn’t kill them. Then they plug

So these poor creatures die really slowly in front of the whole pod. “If you find it upsetting, sign the petition, write to the Japanese Government and really start the pressure.” Wyanda is set to leave the Sea Shepherd at the end of March, though her work on the Sam Simon is considered high risk, with life threatening consequences for her actions. “They disrupt and go in front of their boats,” Garry said. “The Japanese could ram her boat, that could sink and she could die, but she feels she would die for a really good cause - she’s not getting worn down yet.” To learn more about Sea Shepherd visit http:// www.seashepherd.org.au/

Anti-merger stance WITH potential costs to ratepayers at the forefront of their decision, AlburyCity has outlined its objection to any proposed amalgamations in the Albury Local Government Area. The draft submission, endorsed by AlburyCity’s Finance and Administration Committee, to the Division of Local Government has been released in response to the Independent Local Government Review Panel report Revitalising Local Government. “AlburyCity also does not support the proposal for the mandatory direct election of mayors in councils with a population of 40,000 or more,� a state-

ment said. “The committee believes that the status quo should remain, which would allow individual councils to decide whether direct elections or councillor elections of mayors is appropriate for its city.� Deputy Mayor and Finance and Administration Committee Chair Cr Henk van de Ven said that change was needed in the sector, but forced amalgamations were not the answer. “Based on the experience of the previous two boundary changes between Albury and the former Hume Shire, it’s not something that we would

support at this time,� he said. “The costs and logistics involved with absorbing sections of another council will be too much of a burden on our ratepayers and we will not be supporting this proposal. “The sector needs to become more financially sustainable but ratepayers shouldn’t have to pick up the bill. “We believe that the proposals for joint organisations and regional centres are good ones. Many issues we face cross boundaries so if we can work more closely with our regional neighbours then we will be much better equipped to deal with the challenges

facing the sector. This proposal will generate greater efficiency among regional councils and ultimately lead to better financial sustainability across the sector.� AlburyCity will also make a submission to the Local Government Acts Taskforce responding to its review of the Local Government Act. “AlburyCity is supportive of the taskforce’s report A New Local Government Act for NSW and agrees with its recommendation to update the Local Government Act to outline a new legislative framework for the role of councils and how they should be es-

tablished and operate,� the statement continued. The submission also outlines support for the introduction of postal voting and the use of new technologies in local government elections, the replacement of rate pegging with rate benchmarking and the ability for councils to form statutory entities to undertake regional strategic collaboration activities. The draft submissions are on public exhibition at alburycity.nsw.gov.au/ publicexhibition before being presented to full council on Monday 24 March for consideration.

$2.6 million works as airport takes off THE runway at Albury Airport will receive a $2.6 million upgrade, with council appointing Downer EDI Works to oversee the project at its meeting on Monday night. Albury mayor Kevin Mack said the upgrade would be a vital investment in one of the city’s major assets. “Passenger numbers at the airport have grown from 200,000 in 2005 to 280,000 in 2011/12. It’s an increase of 40 percent in seven years,� he said. “With more passengers coming through the airport we need to make sure the facilities can accommodate them. “The airport is a major focus for tourism and economic development. We want to make sure it can cope with demand in the long term. “The runway was last upgraded in 1997 and is due for resealing. Once complete the upgraded runway will have a lifespan of 15 to 20 years and is a significant investment in its longevity.� Works will be conducted at night and are not expected to impact flight arrivals or departures. Works will begin in March.

Italy and Greece have joined forces in the creation of this monster cucumber.

It’s a big one, all right By KRYSTEN MANUEL IT’S big, it’s long, it’s uncut and it’s hanging from a Lavington home’s balcony. “It’s the biggest cucumber in the world, I think,� Joe Ferrinda said. Joe and his neighbour George Galanakis have managed to grow a three foot cucumber from seeds given to George by his grandfather seeds passed down for so many generations, they don’t even know their origin. “I went on holiday to Greece and we got them off my Grandfather,� George said. “They gave them to me to

plant in Australia. “This is the first time we planted them.� The pair planted the seeds in October and have had several cucumbers emerge, with one already detached from the plant, but the largest still connected and growing happily. “We planted them in late October and that’s in the pot, not in the ground,� Joe said. “If they had of been in the ground they would have been even bigger. We might put them in the ground next year. “We’re both gardeners see, we grow a lot of things and together I think we’ve done well.�

Joe said he believed the secret is in-ground in tradition, patience and good old-fashioned talent. “The secret is in the seed, plus we are good gardeners,� Joe said. “I think, with the seeds, it’s something old people do - they keep them generation after generation.� The biggest cucumber in the world, covering an area of 56.7 m2; (610.31 ft2;) was measured at the Epcot Science project at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, USA, July 2006 according to Guinness World Records.

MANY people will remember being a schoolchild and the shock of finding out teachers actually have lives beyond the classroom. In a quirky stroke of creative brilliance, Wodonga Council staff have stepped out of their comfort zones to show the public who they really are in Art Space’s newest exhibition Secret Art Life. Many amazing artworks have taken over Arts Space for four weeks, showcasing the creative side of the council’s staff, identifying, familiarising and introducing to the community a personal side to the people who work for the council. “The idea came about 12 months ago in trying to look at ways to know our staff a little bit more than just through the workplace,” people and workplace manager Marni Jones said. “So I came up with an idea. It was actually going to be an art competition but from that our beautiful curators got the idea and turned it into a exhibition of artwork or collections.” Ms Jones said she had been pleasantly surprised by the quality of work her colleagues produced. “I probably didn’t realise how talented our workforce is, but also the things they’re interested in that you don’t get to know about on a day-today basis because we’re embedded in work,” she said. “This allows us to see what tickles people’s fancies behind the scenes, which is just amazing.” Staff members were asked to display their artistic endeavours, skills or practice, or their personal collections of significance.

Library site turns the page THE old Lavington Library will get a new lease on life, thanks to the Albury Wodonga Community Network. The network is set to turn the site into a new Youth and Family Development Centre. The new facility will operate as a “young persons’” community centre for those people aged 12 years to 17 years. It will aim at providing youth and family support including the promotion of life skills and positive community engagement; as well as a youth and family support centre that provides advice and referral services, assessment and case management, youth development, counselling, skill focused group training and a parenting skills program for young parents under 24 years. The AWCN Board of Directors will enter a commercial lease agreement with AlburyCity and use the facility to operate the centre, with the service getting underway on 1 July. AlburyCity mayor Kevin Mack said the city had offered AWCN a commercial lease for up to five years. He said the agreement was a great outcome for the residents of Lavington. “Council is very pleased that it’s been able to finalise lease arrangements while facilitating

improved services for our community,” he said. “The Albury Wodonga Community Network Incorporated is known for its great support to residents and council is thrilled we can help by providing a location that allows them to grow their services. “There is always demand for youth-based services in the community and it will be perfect to have these services on offer in the heart of Lavington. It will complement the programs delivered by AlburyCity and will be a great addition to youth support in our community. “This arrangement provides the most benefit to council and the community. The central location is also ideal allowing people to access this service in the CBD. It also means that this site will continue to deliver great community benefits for the people of Lavington.” The use of the premises for this purpose will require development consent. This will be undertaken as part of a normal development application process. Albury Wodonga Community Network chairperson Colin Alcock said the new centre would offer all sorts of services. “The AWCNI Board of Directors also agree this new central location will allow greater oppor-

Multi-agency depot opens for business ALBURY’S new $3.2 million multi-agency depot has now been officially opened in Water Works Road, East Albury. The depot, which will house staff and equipment from Roads and Maritime Services, Primary Industries, Agriculture and Fisheries and Office of Water was officially opened by NSW Minister for Finance and Services Andrew Constance and Member for Albury Greg Aplin. “The new purpose-built facility means we have been able to con-

solidate smaller depots which were spread out across the region into one centrally positioned site,” Mr Constance said. “Having these agencies under one roof will help to improve service delivery and efficiency by reducing duplication of materials and equipment. “The project, which has been undertaken by Government Property NSW, is a pilot and we’ll closely be monitoring to see how it all goes. If it is successful, we may look to roll out similar facilities across the state

to help to deliver more savings to NSW taxpayers.” Mr Aplin said the new building was a boost for local staff. “The new depot is much better suited than the older facilities where these agencies were previously housed,” Mr Aplin said. “In addition to extra storage space for materials, machinery and heavy equipment, the new facility includes space for new workshops, chemical storage and waste recycling.

Time to think weeds WITH significant rain in many parts of the north-east region in the past week, farmers will have been thinking about their summer weed control programs. It is vital to get on top of weeds early and prevent seed setting, but it is just as important to ensure any chemical spraying is done safely and responsibly. Equipment set-up, weather conditions, legal obligations and the products themselves play a huge role in chemical spraying. Here are a few tips to make sure everything goes to plan: Ensure you read the product label thoroughly and understand all the requirements and advice to make sure the job is done as effectively as possible. Many products require weeds to

be actively growing and not under heat stress for the chemical to work. With several product labels now requiring strict weather conditions for spraying (i.e. all 2,4-D products require a wind speed of 3-15 kilometres per hour while Roundup PowerMAX requires 4-12 km/h and others have a temperature limitation), ensuring appropriate weather conditions are present is more important than ever. As a general rule ideal spraying conditions include: * A steady wind of 3-15 km/h blowing away from sensitive areas, unless there are specific label requirements; * No inversion layer present; * Temperatures below 28 degrees C; and * A delta T (T, which is related to

temperature and relative humidity) of 2-8. A great deal more information about weather is available now than ever before. Websites such as the Bureau of Meteorology Water and the Land (www. bom.gov.au/watl), as well as several chemical manufacturers and resellers, provide up-to-date information as well as forecasts that allow farmers to plan spray jobs in advanced. It should be noted that these tools should only be used for planning as the weather that really matters is the actual weather on the day at the location of spraying. Products such as those containing any form of 2,4-D require that a coarse to very coarse spray quality (droplet

Now is the time to start organising weed control.

size) be achieved to minimise the risk of off-target spray drift. This is not only vital to prevent damage to nearby sensitive crops such as grape vines but also will save you

money in the long term as any chemical you lose from drift is a waste. Standard Flat Fan nozzles cannot achieve this droplet size, so consult your local nozzle retailer for advice.

“THE future of boating is in your hands!” This is the message from member for Albury, Greg Aplin, who is urging recreational boaters and maritime stakeholders in the electorate to have their say on the future of boating on major waterways across the state. Mr Aplin said community consultation had begun on identifying the projects and priorities for the coming years to ensure our waterways were safe and accessible. “We want to hear from the people who use our waterways the most,” he said. These include everyday recreational boaters, members of the maritime industry and anyone else with an interest in the electorate’s waterways. “Everyday boaters, local sporting organisations and other local

11 regions, including the Albury electorate. “The project team will also be meeting relevant local councils and conducting focus groups with peak stakeholder organisations to get an

understanding of the key issues in the electorate,” Mr Aplin said. “All of the feedback we receive will help us produce a draft boating plan for the region. “Transport for NSW will then visit each region to talk to the community so people will have another chance to look at and provide feedback on the plans before they are bedded down. “The online survey for the Murray-Riverina region will be open for submissions until Sunday, 20 April. “It is expected that the regional boating plan for our region will be finalised well before next summer’s boating season.” The complete consultation schedule and online surveys for each region are available at transport.nsw.gov.au/engagement/nswregional-boating-plans.

Letters Time to clean up EVERY year the Albury City and City of Wodonga Councils call on Albury-Wodonga residents to join Clean Up Australia Day. Last year more than half a million volunteers around the country removed just over 16,000 tonnes of rubbish, which is a formidable achievement. Albury-Wodonga residents should be proud of their contribution. As an organisation focused on minimising the impact on the environment, the National Packaging Covenant Industry Association is participating. We have also encouraged our member companies to take part. But while cleaning up after litterers is a noble and necessary cause, we believe it should be more than just a one-day event. It should be considered the right thing to do every day. Instead of just one-off events, we need to find more long-term solutions to the littering problem.

Connecting people and communities

www.awnw.com.au

Email your letter to: letters@portmacquarieindependent.com.au We need to fight littering by changing behaviours and prevent litter happening in the first place by tackling the causes. The NPCIA’s National Litter Action Plan has been developed to do this. By providing the right infrastructure so residents can deposit their litter, by making it unacceptable in society to litter and by taking action against those that still choose to litter, we can have a lasting impact. In contrast, cleaning up after litterers in problem-solving terms is an “end of pipe” solution. And other solutions put forward, such as the Container Deposit Levy (CDL), will make people feel it’s all right to litter because someone else will be motivated to pick it up and collect the deposit. Clean Up Australia Day should be applauded for the impact it has had and we are pleased to be part of it again this year. But as a country we need to look at the litter plans and the commitments already in effect which will prevent litter happening in the first place. Stan Moore, CEO, The National Packaging Covenant Industry Association.

Just A Piece of Rag WE’VE heard a rumour Mr Pollie You would like to change our flag Seems it no longer serves your purpose Classed as just a piece of rag

Doubt you’ve heard the sabres rattle Smelt death upon the breeze Or thanked your God you’re breathing Crouched in trenches on your knees. Have you ever choked on cordite Seen the bodies spread around While it’s hard to gain a footing In the gore upon the ground Now you call our flag a nothing Seems the colours just don’t suit All they gave and all they died for You intend to give the boot. Do you lean toward the orange Or is your fancy green Is there more behind your changing We Colonials haven’t seen? How about a host of colours Let imagination run Would a socialistic red star Outvote the Rising Sun? Let us have our own republic If it’s what the people say Don’t try and force opinions Or legislate to have your way Australia for Australians Not just one man’s dream of power Else your flavour of the moment Surely turns our future sour.

You have hoisted your true colours We see a traitor’s mind that’s fickle Do you cheer when at assemblies Salute the hammer and the sickle? Never class the aged as being stupid Or degrade a nation’s losses Our flag flies proud forever Over many thousand blood-stained crosses. Bill Whitham, Tallandoon.

We’re Doing What Is Right THEY can call us storm-troopers They can call us anything they like But, we can’t be called cowards Because we’re doing what is right It’s not right to kill a baby in the womb It’s not right to use a plastic bag for their tombs It’s not easy standing there With our heads bowed in prayer It’s akin to a funeral, because that’s what it is.

Social Seen Bootcamp is a battlefield By KRYSTEN MANUEL, THE All Fit Border Battlefield had a massive variety of people puffing and sweating at the Kinross last weekend. The event attracted 298 people, who came in sporting teams, work groups, friendship groups and singularly for a morning of fun and fitness. “It’s a bit of fun, a bit of teamwork,” All Fit Border Battlefield organiser Paul Azzi said. “The event is growing, so it’s a good thing for sporting teams and groups. “It’s a course with obstacles - we had 15 set up on the course - which is something a little bit more exciting than doing normal PT. “There’s no recorded first place or last place, you just do your best and that’s all we want you to do.” Border Battlefield was originally called Border Bootcamp, but has evolved and grown to cater for more and more varied people. The weekend’s competition featured people from the ages of 15 to 58.

AlburyCity’s vegetation officer Steve Onley says the poisoning of these trees has had a major impact on Albury’s ecology.

Trees poisoned ALBURYCITY and the Office of Environment and Heritage are appealing to the community for information about the deliberate poisoning and removal of 27 trees in the Black Range and Nail Can Hill reserves.

The affected trees (including some trees up to 200 years old) have been found with drill holes in their trunks which have been filled with a suspected herbicide. In each case the tree has either died and been removed, or

its health has significantly deteriorated. Trees in this area form part of an Endangered Ecological Community (EEC) under the NSW Threatened Species and Conservation Act.

More than the sum of its (body) parts By KRYSTEN MANUEL MOVIE: Wolf Creek 2 STARRING: John Jarratt, Ryan Corr DIRECTOR: Greg McLean DURATION: 107 minutes

For exercising with a gourmet twist, don’t miss Gran Fondo Beechworth.

A bite of wheel life By KRYSTEN MANUEL EAT your way through the picturesque streets and countryside around Beechworth - and work it off on two wheels! Gran Fondo Beechworth offers event participants a selection of ideal bicycle holiday escapes to improve on their cycling prowess (if desired) and explore new destinations with their tastebuds. Gran Fondo is a non-competitive bicycle ride down quiet country roads that will lead you to sampling the very best of local cheeses and wines. The inaugural event took place in 2013 when just over 700 cyclists took part, and returns in 2014 with even more expected thanks to significant changes to minimise the impact of road closures. The main event will be held on Sunday morning instead of Saturday and the route has been changed. Gran Fondo Beechworth Director, Michael Hands is looking forward to delivering the event. “We held the inaugural event in 2013 and had a great response from participants,” he said. “We have had valuable feedback and ideas from participants, local residents and businesses and are looking forward to growing and improving the event in 2014 to showcase the wonderful region, with its stunning buildings and superb food and wine. “We are working closely with lo-

cal council, food and wine groups and stakeholders to try and create a real hallmark cycling event.” Gran Fondo is the brainchild of Mr Hands, who attended a similar event in Italy. “Gran Fondo is a brand that initiated in Italy in really good food and wine regions, which is not a surprise, given it’s Italy,” he said. “I went for a visit over there a few years ago and it was fantastic. “It was an event called Granfondo Pinarello, which is backed by one of the major bike brands in Italy.” This luxurious bicycle vacation through unspoiled towns near Beechworth in Victoria’s high country is the perfect opportunity to rest your head in quality country accommodation, eat gourmet cuisine and taste world-class wines with family and friends. Locals are only too happy to welcome tourists to explore their region on two wheels and point out the “must see and do’s” found off the beaten track. “There’s a range of things in Beechworth,” Mr Hands said. “There’s a number of orchards in the area, so we have apples and olive groves, Beechworth Honey, the Bridge Road Brewery and a number of other producers who will provide content that people will get in their hamper when they enter.”

Enjoy the freedom of rolling down quiet country roads towards local farmgates where you can sample food produced on the premises and learn the artisan production techniques that lead to the highest quality produce. Meet the maker behind the cheese, and the vigneron behind the drop. The cycling weekend includes something for everyone from the serious to the not so serious.

Truth can be funnier than fiction By TANIA PHILLIPS SOMETIMES the truth is stranger than fiction and more entertaining at that particularly when it’s written and performed by Lally Katz. Fresh from a season in New York, Lally Katz is bringing her new show “Stories I Want to Tell You in Person’’ to the Butter Factory Theatre 6-15 March. Written and performed by the amazing Ms Katz, considered one of the funniest and most original playwrights working in Australia today, the play is a tale of art, love, money, shoes . . . and the apocalypse - but not necessarily in that order. Now Lally was originally commissioned by Belvoir to write a play about the global financial crisis but you see the thing is - and this is a true story - Katz spent her commission (and then some) actually going to a fortune teller. In New York. More than once. So it’s the story of what Katz was doing instead of writing her play - kind of like her version of that essay your teen wrote about what they were doing instead of doing the essay they should have been writing - but a whole lot funnier. So “Stories I Want to Tell in Person” is part confessional, part travel docu-

Sometimes, some stories need to be told in person. mentary and very-big-part failed romance (or not-so failed, you’ll have to come and see). According to Lally it’s confrontingly personal and at times cringe-inducingly honest - a fascinating examination of life imitating art or art imitating life, or

manufacturing life to put into art. Anyone who’s met her will know that the word ‘irrepressible’ has nothing on Lally Katz. Even at her quietest, she makes chaos charming and catastrophe positively exuberant. She is a playwright by trade, graduating the University of Melbourne’s School of Studies in Creative Arts and studied playwriting at London’s Royal Court Theatre. Her only previous stage credit is playing a rabbit in her version of Frankenstein, which was also Ralph Myers’ directorial debut. She is a thrilling and delightful stage natural. Anything can happen when she’s onstage. Seriously. Anything could happen.

“THE best way to a man’s heart is through his chest,” according to Mick Taylor (Jarratt), though he could have fooled me. Between the spine cracking, whipping, stabbing, setting on fire and just general butcher’s work, he sure knows there’s more than one way to skin a rabbit. Following on from the original film, Mick is up to his old tricks again - ridding the country of “introduced species” one backpacker at a time - oh, and a couple of cops too. In another epic hunt, British backpacker Paul (Corr) is chased across the desert and pushed to breaking point physically and mentally after attempting to save one of Mick’s previous victims. This time, we are given a gory snapshot of the true depth of Mick’s lunacy, when Paul is taken to a dungeon-like, underground torture tunnel. Here, after a couple of Bundys, a quiz and a brief sing-along, Paul escapes and endeavours to find a

way out. Brace yourself for some truly stomach-churning scenes and a fright that will have the entire cinema lift off their chairs in unison. The success of the original Wolf Creek can be attributed to high-quality talent at work across the board - from the cinematography to the fine balance of gore and plot. But the real highlight is in Jarratt’s dealing with his character. The juxtaposition of the cheery, endearing, outback Aussie with a keen sense of humour, and the crazed killer who delights in torture and practically foams at the chase, is sublime. These qualities have flawlessly followed through to Wolf Creek 2, with some spectacular cinematography and, strangely, some pretty decent laughs. My only criticism is with the script. Mick carrying on about how much he hates tourists did not have to continue to the degree it did. We all know he’s less than fond of them, if he’s going to butcher them and collect their parts.

The search for value SOMETIMES it takes a person to become a veteran of purchasing to realise that quite often skilled marketing is opposite to the best value. The carefully managed Christmas retail bonanza is behind us; the models introduced specifically for Christmas to later claim high artificial discounts and other promotional razzamatazz have evaporated. Quite often the best time to negotiate the best offer is during the off-promotional periods. Your choice is wider and both retailer and wholesaler, well aware of the new models on the way, have a genuine need to remove the stock. For many companies the market is based around the USA financial year, which concludes at the end of March. It is also the time many companies lock in the negotiated exchange rate for the year. This year we will see an interesting set of circumstances that will affect most retailers over the course of the year. Pricing from major exporting companies is beginning to rise, something that has been foreign in the electronics market, along with nearly a 10 per cent change in the US currency which will see either a lesser grade product at the old price point or a new higher price set for the item.

Forget the marketing and search for true value. Announcements are beginning to become a daily event through our trade magazines, with highly marketed major brands withdrawing from market segments they were once very strong in. Is it all doom and gloom the answer is no, the opportunities for the brands that were value rather than price alone often becomes more noticed and recognised.

The shift towards value over price cycle tends to benefit the customer, with a little more time and care taken on the purchase you will identify the product that performs and is competitively priced.

Teaching kids about money By KRYSTEN MANUEL MOST people will remember the phrase ‘pocket money’ from their childhood. Ironically, ‘pocket money’ is the opposite of how you want to teach your children about saving and budgeting. It might be just pocket change to you, but to the child it opens up avenues of freedom and important learning. So when is the right time to start teaching your children about money and how to manage it? Surprisingly, this could start from an early age. You know your child’s abilities best and there is no specific number to put on it, but if your child is bright, you can start teaching them some very basic things from around the age of four. Forming good habits, like saving and budgeting, and teaching children the value of things gives them a head start in life. It teaches them to prepare for tough times, it helps them delay buying things and avoid impulse shopping and can help them avoid unnecessary and unhealthy debt. One of the best ways to teach your children anything in life is to lead by example. So remember - monkey see, monkey do! There are four main instruments when teaching a child good money habits: introducing money through play, letting them earn pocket money, using savings goals and charts and demonstrating how to budget for something. Firstly, introducing money to children can be as simple as letting them play shop with real coins and notes to teach them the numerical value of each piece. Even allow them to get the money from your wallet (supervised of course) to pay people in everyday life. In what is almost a cashless society your children probably only see cash occasionally, maybe when it comes out of a hole in the wall or you’re handing over some small change for a coffee.

Getting them more familiar with money will help them learn its value. Secondly, give children pocket money. It’s up to you how much money you give your children and how often, but make sure they earn it. Simple chores they could do might be making their bed, putting toys away, setting the table, helping with dinner by peeling vegetables and stacking the dishwasher or washing-up. As they get older, allow their jobs to increase in number and level of difficulty, but stress the value of doing a job correctly - if it’s not done, you don’t get paid! Thirdly, savings goals and charts are a fantastic way to prepare your child for money in the adult world. Piggy banks are a fun way to start a savings habit at an early age, you could even consider leading by example - have a jar or piggy bank of some kind yourself. Make a show of counting them at the end of each week to show how much you have both saved. Talk to your children about what they’d like to save for and write it down - this is their first savings goal. For older children you could even introduce a plan to shop around and find the best bargain. Once they have a certain amount you might suggest putting it in a savings account for them to help them earn a little interest - document this too. Make a savings chart, something visual and fun. Using an iPad or tablet could be the best way to keep the child interested, though a sticker system on some coloured cardboard could work just as well. Finally, show the child how to budget. Once they have their savings goal and a chart to help them see how they’re progressing, teach them

Teaching children about money can start before they even reach school. about a simple budget. If you’re giving them pocket money, explain how some should be kept as savings and some for spending. Help them decide how much they need to save each week to reach their goal and how much they should spend. The idea of ‘emergency savings’ can also be introduced - money that shouldn’t be touched unless it’s an ‘emergency.’

Throughout this whole process, you may find your child has set some high goals, or may find they need some incentive. A final idea to assist with building an excitement for saving could be to agree to add the same amount they save each month. This could be an incentive to keep saving if you make it a condition that they don’t touch the savings until the agreed time.

A clear view from the cloud

Sense from your dollar By KRYSTEN MANUEL DECIDING that you want to take control of your financial future is the first step to a greater financial happiness and freedom. One option you may be interested in is finding a financial advisor - and this can be a minefield. Many questions and assessing will be needed in the search for the right financial advisor, it is not an overnight process. But these seven tips from The Australian Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC), will give you a great head start in the right direction. Only deal with financial advisers and planners who hold an Australian Financial Services Licence (AFSL), provided by ASIC, or an adviser listed as an authorised representative of an AFSL holder. This can be checked by visiting the ASIC website service. Assess and list your financial situation and goals. This will help you work out whether you actually need financial advice. If you do, you have a better idea of what type of advice that you want and the goals you wish to achieve through that service. Ask around for recommendations. If you aren’t having any luck, organisations such as the Independent Financial Advisers Association of Australia (IFAAA), the Financial Planning Association (FPA) or CPA Australia can also refer you to financial advisers in your local area. Don’t limit yourself - shop around and speak to several advisors to see what fits best. When you contact an adviser, ask the adviser to send the

By KRYSTEN MANUEL

Finding the right financial advisor for you is crucial to financial freedom. firm’s Financial Services Guide (FSG). The FSG s a legal document that must disclose all commissions payable, fees charged, adviser experience and ownership of the advising firm. Find an advisor with both experience and qualifications. A financial adviser needs to be licensed, but a holding an AFSL licence doesn’t necessarily mean that an adviser is experienced or an expert in all areas of investing. Do your homework. Ask what the service will cost. Financial advice is not free. If an adviser is employed by a product provider, such as a bank or major financial organisation, then the advice you receive is not independent. Ask: Are there restrictions on the financial products that the financial adviser can recommend? Some advisers are limited to financial products issued by the organisation they work for, or their parent company. Unless you’ve decided that you especially want one of those financial products, this won’t necessarily suit your needs and if it doesn’t suit your needs, you’re wasting your time and money.

FOR real-time access and contact with your business advisor, world standard security and an overall superior approach to business accounting, you need to make the move to cloud accounting software. Yes, the revolution is here. Why should you be able to access your music, films, emails, texts and social media through cloud technology and not the really important things in life like your business? Salisbury Accountants and Business Advisors partner Matt Salisbury believes wholeheartedly in the product and has passed the passion on to his valuable clients. “All of the clients we’ve moved across to that space are loving it,” he said. “They spend less time behind a computer, leaving more time to spend with their family and working on their business and they’re getting better access to us as well. “The businesses we have mi-

grated across to cloud accounting software at the moment range from straightforward sole traders up to a multiple entity business with over 100 employees.” Cloud accounting has been a part of Salisbury Accountants and Business Advisors for four years now, having identified Xero as the most beneficial provider on the current market. The program essentially holds every piece of data needed for business bookwork, with easier, state-of-the-art systems in place to enter data. “Traditional accounting software is basically desktopbased - this has limited the user to only being able to work on the PC that the software’s loaded on,” Mr Salisbury explains. “But cloud accounting software is based in the ‘cloud’, not on the desktop. All you need is an internet connection and you can be anywhere in the world and accessing your accounts to see how your business is performing. “It’s directly linked to your

bank statements as well, so every day your bank transactions feed through to the accounting system. It’s really accurate and banks love it. Under the old system it could take an accountant up to a month or two months to get interim financials done, under this system we can generally get them turned around in under a week. “At the moment with the way society is with paper and receipts - cloud accounting has created another big selling feature. “For instance, you’ve just got a taxi from the airport back to the office, you get your receipt from the cab, you can actually take a photo of it with your smartphone, it loads straight into the software and the receipt will attach itself to the transaction. The tax office is happy for that to count as your receipt, so you can actually throw the hard copy in the bin.” To spend more time working on your business rather than in it, give Salisbury Accountants and Business Advisors a call.

Nissan’s new direction By ALISTAIR KENNEDY NISSAN Pathfinder has been on sale in Australia since 1987 and has established a wellearned reputation as a reasonably tough 4WD off-roader. It is not quite in the same class as vehicles such as its Nissan Patrol sibling or Toyota’s LandCruiser but it’s rugged enough to attract plenty of rural sales. With the arrival of its fourthgeneration model in late 2013 Pathfinder has been caught up in the SUV surge and now not only comes with the option of two or four-wheel drive but also loses the extra grunt of diesel power. Now that the switch to SUV has been made the need for a body-on-frame chassis has gone and new Pathfinder has returned to the monocoque construction used in the middle period of the vehicle’s life. Likewise a manual gearbox has been dropped and the previous five and seven-speed automatics replaced by continuously variable transmission (CVT). Such has been the significant changes to Pathfinder and its long history as a serious offroader that we wonder if Nissan was ever tempted to adopt a totally new name to attack its very different new market. In line with the structural and powertrain changes, Pathfinder has now taken on a softer, smoother appearance aimed clearly at urban buyers. The square, boxy look of the previous model has been replaced with a much more fashionable contemporary look with a flowing roofline, new headlights and small rear spoiler. The new Pathfinder is larger in all dimensions including 195mm extra length which ena-

sure monitoring. A multi-camera Around View park assist system is optional on the ST-L and standard on the Ti models. All models get Bluetooth phone and audio streaming; USB and auxiliary sockets; steering wheel mounted control; single CD player; and music server hard drive. The display on the ST and ST-L uses a 7-inch QVGA colour monitor while the Ti gets an eight-inch VGA LCD unit as well as a premium Bose audio system; and satellite navigation. Around View is available as part of a $2300 Option Pack with the ST-L that also includes the Bose audio andSatNav. Push-button engine start/ stop is standard on all three variants as are tri-zone climate-

control air conditioning; leather trimmed steering wheel and gear shift knob; roof rails; and tilt-telescopic steering wheel adjustment. Pathfinder ST-L adds electronic steering wheel adjustment; heated front seats; front fog lamps; twin sun roofs; and leather-accented door and seat trim. Extras on the Ti include driver seat and side mirror adjustment memory. The switch from 4WD to SUV has made the fourthgeneration Nissan Pathfinder a very different vehicle to its predecessors. As is demanded by its new target buying group it’s much more refined and significantly quieter than before. It’s a big seller in the United States - indeed it’s built in Tennessee - so the ride may be softer than some Australians like. But if a big, quiet comfortable cruiser is what you want, the big Nissan provides it in spades. Conscious of ground clearance of just 165mm we treaded carefully along our off-road test route but were quite impressed with how the suspension absorbed the frequent bumps and pot holes. While some will mourn the demise of yet another serious off-roader, the high proportion of Australians that live in urban areas means that car companies will continue to target these areas. With demand for SUVs, especially those with two-wheel drive, growing dramatically the new Pathfinder now ticks plenty of boxes and is well worth adding to the check list of potential buyers.

Bikes heating up on Border HELLO everyone, welcome back to motorcycling in 2014 and aren’t things starting to hot up, both locally and internationally. Supercross racing is in full swing in America with Aussie riders competing and going very well, although it was disappointing to see Chad Reed suffer a nasty injury after riding so well. Moto GP has completed the first round of pre-season testing with all the usual riders back at the top of the time sheets, although Marc Marquez put a scare into the Repsol camp with a training accident that saw him suffer a minor leg fracture that will keep him off the track until race one. Locally, I attended the national come and try day at the Albury Wodonga Motorcycle club complex on the Lincoln causeway complex this past weekend and what a terrific event it was. Heaps of motorcycles of all types and sizes and riders of all ages and experience levels were able to enjoy both the motocross and the flat track circuits for a low cost and experience some of what motorcycle racing has to offer as a sport. It’s also been great to see so many people out on the roads, with many riders detouring into Albury on their way to Phillip Island for the opening round of the World Superbikes. One thing that does disappoint me though is the steady stream of riders we see through the shop when there is

a major motorcycle event at Phillip Island with tyres falling apart, with the steel belts of the tyre carcass showing. The modern motorcycle tyre for roadbikes is an amazing feat of technology, transferring the horsepower of a modern motorcycle to the road over a huge range of terrain and all sorts of weather conditions. Dunlop’s latest offering in highperformance tyres, the “Sportspmart2” or “Sportsmart Squared “as it is known in Europe use Steel JLB technology, meaning fewer components and up to an eight per cent reduction in weight. The Steel JLT also provides for improved high-speed stability and reduces excess heat at high speed. Another new feature on the rear is the use of the JointLess Tread Technology (JLT) in the laying of the tread. This process is similar to the strip winding method as used in the UK made N-Tec race tyres. The rear tyre also uses dual compound tread for high-speed stability and improved mileage. I guess what I’m trying to say is with tyres being so good these days, please check your tyre pressures and tread wear before setting off on a ride and if in any doubt replace your tyres! With so much technology and design going into the modern tyre, there really is no excuse. It’s the only thing keeping you upright and on the road.

Motorcycle riders should keep an eye on their tyres.

Long-term investment

Enzo Raimondo

Dropoffyour screendoorat Wunderbarfor

FOR property owners, news of price rises is always encouraging, less so when we hear of the occasional market dips. But worrying about shortterm price variations overlooks the fact that property is, ideally, a longterm investment and it is long-term data which shows just what a good investment it is. The REIV has collected median house prices for more than 20 years. So while comparisons with previous quarters are interesting, it is comparisons with the previous year or even five years which are more significant for capital gain. Median prices for the 2013 December quarter show healthy growth in some parts of the state and the market beginning to recover in others. In areas which showed one year median price growth, the comparisons were far more substantial over five years. In Ararat, for example, the median house price of $179,750 was up

14.9 per cent on the same quarter in 2012. Five years ago the median was $131,500. In the Central Goldfields, with a December quarter median of $225,000, the one-year growth was a healthy 19.7 per cent. And five years ago the median was just $155,000. The December 2013 median of $318,750 for Baw Baw was 9.9 per cent higher than the December 2012 median. Five years ago the median price was $217,500. The City of Greater Shepparton median of $262,746 was 7.2 per cent up on the previous year and compared with a $254,250 median five years earlier. The City of Greater Geelong’s December median of $410,500 was 6.6 per cent up, year-on-year, and $319,000 five years ago, while the City of Greater Bendigo was up 4.9 per cent for the year, with a median of $320,000 in December 2013 and $238,000 in December 2008.

What an opportunity By KRYSTEN MANUEL THIS fully renovated beauty is a brilliant opportunity to enter the market as an owner, occupier or investor. But with a strong rental history - having previously been let at $285 a week - 12 Melrose Drive is an investor’s delight. The main features of this property are primarily location and careful attention to detail. Being on Melrose Drive, occupants will enjoy the close proximity to shops, the Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre, schools and being just a minute’s drive from the freeway. Walking to the front door, you will notice a driveway (and carport) that runs beside the house and out to a double lockup garage, providing four car spaces.

You will also notice a security door on the front of the home - a standard feature for every external door on number 12 Melrose. Through the wide entry, onto classy polished timber floorboards and to the right will land you in the lounge room which enjoys ample natural light thanks to two large windows and a ceiling fan for the warmer months. Into the kitchen you will find a large, open plan area with room for a dining table, plus extra storage for the avid cook. This part of the home also provides outside access to the courtyard, which is more like an oasis with its water feature, shadecloth and established plants. Bedroom one is a double and

offers two built-in robes and split-system. Bedroom two is also a double and offers the same as bed one, but with the added bonus of a ceiling fan. The master bedroom is queen-size and features four clever built-in robes for extra storage, a split-system, ceiling fan and quality drapes. The bathroom is quite spacious, with oversize shower, the all-important bathtub, heat lamps and two-way separate toilet. Through the laundry, with its built-in storage, will lead you to the back door, opening out to the main yard - spacious, established and gated for any fourlegged family member. Don’t miss your chance to inspect this timely investment.

Des, David on league board THE Ovens & Murray Football Netball League (OMFNL ) has announced Des Lonergan and David Avery as official appointees to the league board last week. Lonergan is well respected in footballing circles, boasting an association with the league for over half a century. He started as a club umpire with the Yarrawonga Football Netball Club in the 1960s and has been a member of both the Albury Wodonga Umpires and Albury Umpires’ League of which he is a life member. In 2005, he joined league radio broadcaster OAK FM before hanging up the microphone following last year’s SS&A OMFNL grand final. David Avery moved to Wodonga in 1992, and following his high school studies, he then relocated to Melbourne to study to become a solicitor. Upon receiving his degree, Avery returned to the Border where he resumed his football career with the Wodonga Bulldogs in the SS&A OMFNL before progressing to the coaching ranks with

the Bulldogs Reserves. Off field, Avery is a partner at local legal firm Keating Avery Solicitors and has also been a member of the Wodonga Chamber of Commerce Leadership team. Last season Avery served on the Ovens & Murray Independent tribunal. Lonergan joins the board on a 12-month term while Avery’s position will see him with the league for the next two years. In another boost for the league, general manager Aaron McGlynn and opperations officer Greg Dawson have both received contract extensions following a successful 2013 season. The extensions will see both positions secure until early 2016. McGlynn joined the league in 2010 as Operations Officer following three years as sports presenter with Prime 7 News, Albury. Prior to the start of last season, he was appointed as general manager. Dawson is embarking on his second year with the SS&A OMFNL after holding managerial roles at both Albury Tigers and Wodonga Raiders.

Des Loneragn is now officially on the Ovens & Murray Football Netball League board.

Big turn-out at battle of beasts By KRYSTEN MANUEL, PHOTOS: ADAM WILSON IT WAS a ‘Battle of the Beasts’ last weekend with the Albury CrossFit Touch ’N Go competition attracting 50 competitors. Organisers estimated a total of between 150 to 200 people came through the door to watch athletes of all levels sweat and grunt it out to achieve top dog status. “The atmosphere, cheering and encouragement was great too - everyone was there for the same reason, it was a massive community event for the day,” gym owner Marilyn Dobe said. “We had people from Sydney, Leeton, Wagga Wagga, the other Albury CrossFit gym and Beechworth. “It was a competition-based event where people come and compete against people of all different levels of fitness and ability.

There are four different work outs during the day, so competitors undertake all of those. Then it’s based on a points over all system.” Results for the day were positive for the homeground Carcoola Street gym, with winners across the board. “The advanced male and female winners were both from our gymnasium - Cam Elston and Sam Pennant - so it was good to have people from our gym take out those,” Dobe said. “We also had two kids competing. One was my son, Kanakai and he’s 11, he came first in the juniors, with Jack Fewson coming in second. “They competed with the intermediate males, which is a way to show people it’s for anyone - not just extreme athletes. “We had first timers doing it right up to people like Dave Ware who has made it up quite high in the CrossFit industry.”

Local Sport Riding the Hunchback By KRYSTEN MANUEL, Pictures: ADAM WILSON FOR the first time in 15 years, the Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers (AWMB) put tyre to track in the Fleming Muntz Solicitors Hunchback Stage race. It was a nostalgic moment for Brad Spinelli, who has been with the club since its inception. Competition was fierce, with three major races run in categories of A grade, B grade and juniors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The event was a multi-stage race which included an XC race (cross country) - the quick competitors were about 45 minutes and the slower ones and juniors were around the hour mark,â&#x20AC;? Albury Wodonga Mountain Bikers president Scott Hankel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The XCE (cross country eliminator) is just a short course of a kilometre and riders go down and up hills in heats. The last two riders get knocked out and it just continues until we get a winner. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever done that type of race, so it was interesting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The final stage to the Hunchback was the Downhill Super D.â&#x20AC;? Hankel said the course lent itself to the more experienced rider, though fun was had by all in the typically family-oriented atmosphere of AWMB events. The overall junior category was taken out by Aengus Williams, followed by Matt Carter and Callum Senior. The overall B grade category was won by Craig Quinlivan, with Josh Robinson, John Haynes and David Harper hot on his heels. Finally, the overall A grade was dominated by Christopher Panozzo, followed by Ben Vaughan in second and Trystan Maciulis in third. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the poles were taken out by out-of-towners,â&#x20AC;? Hankel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We struggle to get numbers from our local club to go to local races. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting it down to a lot of bigger events that are around the hour to two hours away. People like to race somewhere else and be somewhere different - thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we get a lot of out-of-towners coming to us.â&#x20AC;? Hankel said he would like to thank Wodonga Council and Victoria Parklands for allowing the AWMB to use Hunchback Hill once again.

Planning for games MORE than 2000 supporters and participants are set to descend on Wodonga later this year, as the region plays host to the Southern University Games. Planning is now officially underway for the event, to be hosted on the Border in July by La Trobe University. Event co-ordinator Patrick Williams said there would be more than 2000 participants and supporters involved in 16 sports during the four-day event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited about the challenge ahead as we prepare to host the Southern University Games,â&#x20AC;? Patrick said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Student athletes from universities and TAFEs across South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania will compete in 16 sports during the games, which run for four days from 7-10 July.â&#x20AC;? Patrick Williams has extensive experience as a sports co-ordinator with South Australian Rugby Union, as well as being an accomplished athlete himself, captaining South Australian rugby for several years. He has also played rugby overseas, in the United Kingdom and United States. La Trobe Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Albury-Wodonga Campus head, Dr Guinever Threlkeld, said the Southern University Games represented a great opportunity both for La Trobe and Wodonga. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an honour for La Trobe to be selected to host the games, which provide a wonderful opportunity for 2000 young people to visit Wodonga and the Border region more broadly,â&#x20AC;? Dr Threlkeld said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is fantastic for the Border region and for La Trobe - the extra visitors to the region will generate publicity and economic activity. The Southern University Games launch will be held on Thursday 13 March 2014 at La Trobe Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Albury-Wodonga campus.
