New Horsham school opens opportunities A


10-year project to establish a purpose-built school for Wimmera children with disabilities has come to fruition.

Construction of a new $6-million Horsham Special School is complete and students will start learning from the new centre from the start of the next school term on July 15. The state-of-the-art school, which provides a new level in education opportunities for Wimmera children with a range of disabilities, has classrooms for primary and secondary students, a unique central sensory activity area and multi-use learning facilities. School council president Max Cuddihy said the High Street north school, built on Horsham College’s senior site, would have community open-day sessions at 1pm and 5.30pm on June 21. Representatives from support organisations such as service clubs

will have a celebration tour on June 19. “It’s been 25 years since the school joined the education department so it’s a nice anniversary present,� Mr Cuddihy said. “Apart from a couple of minor projects, construction of the school is complete. Students have started an orientation process and it is all just fantastic. “I have never seen anything like it in my years in teaching. The great aspect of it all is that it opens up all sorts of possibilities for teachers to help the kids in so many ways.�


The school provides 75 children, aged from five to 18 from across the region, with education needs and living skills. It has a staff of 30, which includes teachers, therapy assistants, education-support and administration personnel and a welfare officer. The new centre, which replaces ad-hoc classroom environments at Horsham College and Horsham West Primary School,


will allow for the number of enrolments to expand considerably. It is likely to promote Horsham as a regional centre of excellence in disability-education services. Principal Matt Copping said the new setup would provide the school with opportunities to pursue programs it couldn’t consider previously. The opening of the new school will correspond with the unveiling of a new school uniform and new motto – Celebrating Diverse Abilities. Mr Cuddihy said he considered the project the start of an overall plan to redevelop Horsham’s secondary education precinct. “This concept was born from the merger of Horsham High and Horsham Technical schools. The project now of course is to get Horsham College rebuilt,� he said. Horsham College leaders are lobbying the State Government to make a commitment to start a $20-million redevelopment project.

Auxiliary generates health cash

East Grampians Health Service Auxiliary members are busy preparing for their annual fund-raising ‘Women, Wisdom and Wellbeing Dinner’ on July 26. The dinner, at Ararat Performing Arts Centre, is usually a sell-out, attracting almost 300 women from across the region. The event provides a backbone to the organisation’s yearly money-raising program. The latest $17,138.35 donation from the auxiliary will go towards Ararat theatre operating and shoulder-traction equipment, chairs for theatre waiting room and pressurerelieving mattresses for an Inpatient Unit. Auxiliary president Margie Kilpatrick, said the auxiliary worked hard during the year with its fundraising activities and it was satisfying to see it

the year,� Ms Kiplatrick said. East Grampians Health Service Peri-operative manager Jane Smith, in thanking the auxiliary, said the equipment would be of ‘enormous’

benefit to the theatre team. “It also supports the health service’s commitment to providing the highest quality health-care facilities and services for our local community,� she said. Health service Inpatient Unit manager Lorine Paterson echoed the sentiments. “The mattresses will be of enormous benefit to our many patients, offering so much more comfort and support, particularly our elderly patients. We are very grateful for EGHS Auxiliary’s generosity and ongoing support. Health service chief executive Nick Bush said: “The East Grampians Health Service Auxiliary is a committed group of women which has provided tremendous support. It has helped the health service be one of the best-equipped services of its type in Victoria.�

Police promise YOUR HEATING Solution to end ‘scourge’ Gas Log Flame Fires


olice have stressed that they will pursue anyone ignoring warnings about assault-related crime to the ‘enth degree’ of the law.

Horsham Acting Inspector Brendan Broadbent said incidents at public places such as nightclubs and streets in the last few weeks indicated that some people were failing to get the message. “Let’s make it clear if we haven’t done so already. There is a zero-tolerance policy in place regarding assaults. Police are determined to put an end to this scourge,” he said. “We are determined to get the message across that some

types of behavior are more than simply unacceptable – they are against the law. And we are going to put a stop to it and enforce the laws to their enth degree,” he said. Assaults are at the heart of Horsham police establishing a Family Violence and Crime Reduction team to deal specifically with the issue.

Public places

Acting Inspector Broadbent said criminal activity in Horsham during the last few weeks included assaults in nightclubs against security and bar staff. “There is a high focus from police to stamp out this type of activity, especially in public

places,” he said. “Even if an incident spills out onto a road, it is still in a public place and that can’t be and won’t be tolerated.” Acting Inspector Broadbent said police were busy working on crime-reduction projects including an operation that would focus on tackling ‘unruly’ behavior. “The behaviour of people across the district during the long weekend was relatively good but assaults still occurred. It’s not good enough,” he said. People can contact their nearest police station to report assaults, ring emergency number ‘000’ or call Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

Asbestos Two more finalists threat to campers

Parks Victoria is considering the best way of managing asbestos contamination at a popular Grampians campground. Staff members closed Stapylton Campground in the northern section of the national park late last week as a precaution. Ranger in Charge David Roberts said a combination of rain and an increased number of visitors to the popular site had led to the exposure of pieces of cement sheeting containing asbestos. He said the pieces of cement sheeting had come from a building that was previously on part of the Stapylton campground. “We are currently working through options to manage the site,” he said. Stapylton Loop Walk and Ngamadjidj Shelter remain open. Walkers can access the Loop track from either Millers Road or Polhners Road. Mr Roberts said northern Grampians campers also had access to Troopers Creek, Plantation and Smiths Mill campgrounds. He said people could visit visitor information centres to find out about private campgrounds surrounding the park.

CAIRNS, LONGREACH & BARRIER REEF CLINICAL LEARNING: From left, University of Ballarat’s Julie-Anne Noble with Pyrenees House nursing students Jonathon Schreuder, Daniel Schreuder, Sarah Paul, Hannah Schreuder, Stacey Perry and Tiarne Smith and clinical teacher Debbie Bennett.

Ready for graduation


he first University of Ballarat Diploma of Nursing students at East Grampians Health Service’s Pyrenees House education centre in Ararat are nearing graduation.

Over the last 18 months, the students have completed clinical placement in aged and acute care and mental health. The program is a joint project between the university and the health service. East Grampians Health Service Clinical Services director Peter Armstrong said it was important to provide students with an opportunity to ‘gain practical experience

and consolidate theoretical learning’. “It is an essential component of the Diploma of Nursing program, and a requirement for national registration as an Enrolled Nurse,” he said. The students will undertake their final clinical placements in coming weeks. Nursing student Stacey Perry said she had enjoyed ‘everything about’ the program. “We have been well supported through the entire course by both the university and by EGHS,” Ms Perry said. “The facilities at Pyrenees House are fantastic. I would recommend the course

to anyone wanting a career in nursing,” she said. East Grampians Health Service education manager Heather Phillips said the students were eager to gain nursing experience, and to pursue further study. “Successful graduates of the Diploma of Nursing program will have 18 months’ credit towards the Bachelor of Nursing qualification with the University of Ballarat,” she said. The University of Ballarat will start the second enrollment for the Diploma of Nursing program at Pyrenees House next month.

Our business is your business EDITORIAL

The Weekly Advertiser is concerned by unfounded reports from readers that our newspaper is being prepared, in part, overseas and at the expense of regional jobs. This is untrue. Today we make our position clear.



he Weekly Advertiser remains a strong and proud supporter of our region, people and workforce. Working in partnership with radio stations 3WM and Mixx FM under the ACE Radio

Broadcasters banner, we are profound believers in the Wimmera Development Association catch-cry: Wimmera – everything you need. The term ‘Wimmera’ of course is a general reference also embracing the southern Mallee, Pyrenees and southern Grampians regions. In the rapidly changing business environment, which includes fingertip access to cheap international electronic labour, the temptation is there for companies to look overseas for ‘outsourced’ contract services. In other words, they can get rid of their presumably troublesome and costly home-based

workforce for a better deal off shore for anything that can be transferred via computer. At The Weekly Advertiser we don’t do this and never will. We value what we have and where we live too much to ever treat our clients, readers and workforce with such disregard.


The print media, with its heavy reliance on graphic design for its advertisements, the written word and electronic information transfer, is particularly susceptible to going down this path of overseas outsourcing. But the truth is, when simply driven on making or saving money for shareholders, this

insidious and ruthless methodology has scant regard for community interests and sensibilities. It has the potential to destroy confidence and faith in the regional Press. If The Weekly Advertiser went down this path it could never claim to be a champion for ‘local’ business or promotion, which would be in stark contradiction to everything we represent. It is fair enough to look beyond our boundaries if we can’t access the skills or services we require in our region. But we urge Wimmera businesses to always consider what we have in our own backyards before looking elsewhere.

Statewide recognition for Wimmera refugees

Wednesday, June 12, 2013


wo individuals who arrived in the Wimmera as refugees and become integral members of their adopted communities have won statewide recognition

Kaw Doh Htoo of Nhill and Hser Wah Pokyaut of Horsham are among 22 new inductees into the Victorian Refugee Recognition Record. Leading Senior Constable Eddy MacDonald nominated Kaw Doh on behalf of Victoria Police and Robyn Murphy from Wimmera Development Association nominated Hser Wah. The Record celebrates and documents the diverse and outstanding contributions people with a refugee background have made to their communities and Victoria. Kaw Doh and Hser Wah have a Karen-Burmese background. Victorian Multicultural Council chairman Chin Tan, said the new inductees were an outstanding group of extraordinary individuals, worthy of recognition. “Through the VRRR, the Victorian Government is able to officially recognise the considerable contributions that people of refugee background are

making within our community,” he said. “By acknowledging their achievements, we are also encouraging respect and harmony within our society.” VRRR recipients represent diverse cultures and age groups, and often dedicate many hours to voluntary work. Many have taken on community leadership roles and provide support to others who are marginalised or disadvantaged. Kaw Doh and Hser Wah will join other Record inductees at an official presentation cer-

emony in Melbourne on June 24. Portraits of each of the inductees will be on public exhibition from Monday in the foyer gallery space of 1 Spring Street.

Contributions Hser Wah provides volunteer services for the Karen, and broader Wimmera communities. Some of her activities include working with migrant support group Oasis Wimmera, working in a variety of community programs through the

Anglican Church and planning for and participating in events such as Karen New Year, Cultural Diversity Week and Harmony Day. She also takes part in local government community planning forums and Settlement Program activities. Kaw Doh arrived in Australia in 2005 and most of his family still lives in a refugee camp on the Thai-Burmese border. After working on a farm in Geelong and doing community studies, Kaw Doh moved to Nhill where he set up a contracting business to collect duck eggs from farms with other members of his Karen community. He has become a link between Karen communities in Werribee and Nhill, driving for hours to take community members to visit friends and relatives on most. He helps people with Centre Link paperwork and is also part of a Karen health and employment support network, providing informal translation and interpreting services. He is a critical member of the Nhill Karen community, which provides volunteer aged-care, school integration and Neighborhood House services.

Construction of a new Nhill Aviation Heritage Centre building at Nhill aerodrome is scheduled to be complete in three months. Centre president

No longer forgotten

Meeting will help


he first Horsham meeting of Open Place for Australians who spent part of their childhood in a children’s home, orphanage or in foster care will be on June 29.

The meeting will be at Horsham community house at 4 Pearl Street from 1pm to 3pm. Open Place is a Commonwealth-funded support service for people whom identify as ‘Forgotten Australians’. The term Forgotten Australians refers to individuals who spent all or part of the childhood in a children’s home, an orphanage or were placed in foster care during the last century up until 1989. Open Place can help people trace their records and family, access counselling and health-care services and regional support structure.

Open Place services already operate in the Wimmera in Donald. Horsham Open Place co-ordinator Phillip Chalker said the service would have monthly meetings to help people. “While this is a Victorian service, we’re talking about 500,000 children across Australia that were in this situation. Expand that by their extended families and it represents a lot of people,” he said. Mr Chalker said people needed to register as a Forgotten Australian on 1800 779 379 before attending meetings. More information is available on the 1800 number or from Mr Chalker on 5381 1935, 0428 173606 or 0458 727 370. Forgotten Australians include all Australians including former child migrants, Indigenous people as well as others from mainstream society.

Top speaker Kaniva College year-eight student Louise Hobbs will represent the Wimmera at regional Legacy Junior Public Speaking Awards at Bendigo. Louise, the Kaniva school’s middle-school captain, provided the standout presentation at Wimmera Legacy’s junior speaking competition. Louise was one of a record 13 students from across the Wimmera to gather at Legacy House in Horsham for the annual event and her presentation was about volunteering, inspired by her mother. St Brigid’s College student Grace Kennedy, also in year eight, was runner-up for the second year in a row and Horsham College year seven student Cate Dunn was third. John Nunn led a panel of judges and encouraged Wimmera youth to take up the challenge of public speaking.

Money for cemeteries

The State Government will provide money to help maintain Dimboola and Pimpinio cemeteries. Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty an-

nounced the two cemeteries would share in $21,090 as part of a statewide allocation of $500,000 to ‘small and medium-sized’ cemeteries.

In the Spotlight



ountry music artists Johnny Lovett from Warrnambool and Bendigo’s Kim Ritchie

will perform for Horsham Country Music Association at Horsham RSL on July 11 and 12. Association secretary Lyall Wheaton said Lovett and Ritchie were ‘really well known’ in Horsham and throughout the Wimmera. “We’re expecting a large crowd to attend both shows. They have both performed twice at Horsham Country Music Festival and have regularly performed at the RSL,” he said. Mr Wheaton said Ritchie, blind since birth, impressed at 2011 and 2012 Mildura Country Music Festivals and would perform again at Mildura this year. Mr Wheaton said Johnny Lovett had been on the country music scene for many years and was a regular at country music clubs and festivals. “He regularly performs at Corowa, Barham and Tooleybuc festivals,” Mr Wheaton said. “He is renowned for his guitar-playing skills having recently backed Robyn Gleeson when she performed at Horsham RSL in April,” he said. Bookings for both shows are now open at Horsham RSL. The dinner and show on the Thursday night costs $30 and the morning Melodies show on the Friday costs $12. People can call the club on 5382 5912. The association is also encouraging country music fans to attend a performance at Horsham RSL featuring Rosebud artist Big Jim Mavro. Big Jim Mavro will perform at a free evening

Wimmera Past Presidents Ladies’ Bowling Association have used a windup luncheon in Horsham to present a cheque and donations totalling $1077.90 to Horsham Hospice Care Auxiliary. Retiring association president Jean Flack handed the donation to auxiliary president Lea Crammond and vice-president Claire Batchelor.

The occasion ended 25 years of association activity and two foundation members, Morva McLachlan and Avis Denholm, were there for the final event. The association formed after the merger at state level of men’s and women’s bowling clubs and the disbanding of Central Wimmera Women’s Association.

Countdown to planting weekend

Wednesday, June 12, 2013


reparations are in full swing for the next installment of a project returning thousands of trees to the Wimmera landscape each year.

BRINGING IT BACK: Nicole Winking of Kaniva prepares to plant a seedling at last year’s Hindmarsh Landcare Weekend.  Picture: DAVID FLETCHER

Enthusiasts from across Victoria and beyond will brave wintry conditions to get their hands dirty at the 16th annual ACE Radio Hindmarsh Landcare Weekend. The August 17 and 18 event, based at Little Desert Nature Lodge at Winiam, will target land at Gerang, Dimboola, Tarranyurk and Kaniva for revegetation. Hindmarsh Landcare Network officials expect a volunteer workforce to plant more than 15,000 seedlings during the two days.

Network chairman Darryl Argall said the hope was the between 30 and 40 ‘locals’ would put up their hands to join 160 others from Melbourne and other areas. “We desperately want the Hindmarsh community to be involved. Apart from the fact that everyone gains great satisfaction from doing wonders for the environment, it is a great way to bridge the gap between city and country people,” he said. “Catering is all supplied and Saturday night activities, where everyone gets together to relax and share experiences is a wonderful occasion. “On Saturday night the will be musical entertainment and a

panel session involving farmers who will share reasons why they are strong believers in combining profitable farming with sustainable landcare. “The development of city-country affiliations has been brilliant. The understanding city people have of rural challenges would never have been greater than what it is now because of the weekend.” ACE Radio, through The Weekly Advertiser and radio stations 3WM and Mixx FM has again swung its weight behind the project, providing $33,000 sponsorship. Mr Argall said the ACE Radio sponsorship, which added up


to more than $300,000 since the weekends started under a Project Hindmarsh umbrella 16 years ago, had given the event traction. “What we know is that we have created 15,000 hectares of native vegetation and planted several million trees as a result,” he said. Compulsory registrations for the plantout weekend opened yesterday and close on July 12. The weekend is limited to 200 people aon a first-in-best-dressed system. People must register online at Wimmera Catchment Management Authority, Greening Australia, Victorian National Parks Association are also partners in the event.

$5000 gift will boost foundation The East Grampians Health Service’s Building for the Future Foundation is $5000 richer after a donation from firm Bayer Animal Health. Bayer Animal Health raised the money through its community program where the sale of selected products generated a five percent rebate, which the

business donated to the foundation. Health service chairman David Hosking said the program had been well supported by district farmers and business such as Elders LTD Ararat, Ararat Veterinary Clinic, Ararat Farm Supplies and Landmark Ararat. “We are absolutely de-

lighted to receive this cheque from Bayer Animal Health,” he said. “The foundation’s primary focus is to sup-

port and sponsor bursaries and scholarships. It is a charitable trust and we are more than happy to receive donations such

as this. This initiative by Bayer to help re-distribute funds back into our community is much appreciated.”

Bayer Animal Health manager Danny Kent said it was important to to support the community. “ The Bayer Animal

Health Community Program is a great way for us to be involved in the community and strengthen that relationship,” he said.

been inspired his sister Connie who has had a long battle with cancer. He travelled through the Wimmera earlier this year, accepting various challenges in each towns he visited and his night at Café Jas next month will be part of his return leg. Sharron Keating from Café Jas said she and her team were keen to rekindle their association with Johnson. “We met Sam and the Love Your Sister team when they passed through Horsham during their first week on the road and set him a challenge to deliver lattes on his unicycle. It was an absolute blast and we raised over $1500,” she said.

Advertisement Everybody deserves faster broadband sooner. Broadband is one of the key requirements for the future success of regional Australian communities. There is another option to the National Broadband Network being promoted by the Federal Coalition that would occur much sooner for many more households. There are approximately two million Australian households and businesses which cannot access basic fixed-line broadband services. After six years of Labor promises, the vast majority of these premises are still no closer to having access to affordable, reliable fixed-line broadband services. HOT CONTEST: Lining up for the Longy Challenge are, from left, Bryan Matuschka, Meaghan Pohlner, Dimboola, Emma Egan, Cora Lynn, Jake Leith, Boolite, David Leech, Mitiamo and Frank Henry, Department of Primary Industries.

Ready, set, grow


he light is flashing and contenders are ready to battle it out in this year’s Longy Challenge.

Sowing has started in the popular crop-production competition with a 13-starter race, which includes cropping researchers, teachers, students, consultants and seed companies. Their challenge this year is to produce good yields and profit from their small crops grown side by side in a paddock at Longerenong College near Horsham. While the contest involves barley this season, it was canola in 2010, with wheat in 2011 and chickpeas last season. Most have opted for a tried and true ‘stayer’ such as Hindmarsh barley but others are betting their success on

Commander and Grange. Some punters are also raising their eyebrows at the Department of Environment and Primary Industries team’s decision to back what some would consider a dark horse in a yet to be released variety from SA. DEPI’s Grains Team members Ashley Wallace and Frank Henry like going ‘against the grain’. “Last year we put in the newly-released Kalkee chickpeas and came over the line in a very credible fourth,” Mr Henry said. He said this year’s barley variety WI 4593, from the University of Adelaide’s Barley Breeding Program, was showing ‘thoroughbred’ potential. “WI 4593 is high-yielding barley that started malt evaluation this year and is expected to

get malt accreditation in 2015,” he said. “It also has a good disease package with resistance to the net form of net blotch, and moderate resistance to leaf rust and powdery mildew. Organiser Steve Drum from Longerenong College said the dry start to the season meant most competitors had sowed at the same time, which would lead to an interesting tussle. Competitors must also take into account the previous year’s impact on the following crop as they keep the same plot from year to year. Mr Drum said the challenge provided an ideal opportunity for Longerenong agricultural students to network with industry participants, to be involved in monitoring and reporting on the plots, learn and have fun.

You’re invited to the

The Coalition has proposed a reliable, simpler and more affordable broadband plan to bring faster broadband services sooner to regional Australia, including Wimmera Mallee towns like Edenhope, Jeparit, Ouyen, Rainbow, Sea Lake and many others. The Coalition plan requires less capital investment and less civil engineering. As a result, the cost to users would be about $300 a year less than the current NBN by 2019. The Coalition plan will ensure download speeds of at least 25 megabits per second to every household in Australia by 2016. These speeds would increase to a minimum of 50 megabits per second by 2019 for most premises on the fixed-line network. Areas with poor broadband would be identified and would be the first to receive upgrades. Currently, some communities without basic fixed‐line broadband are not scheduled to receive the NBN for at least three years. The Coalition plan would use a combination of fibre to the home, fibre to the node, wireless and satellite technology to deliver the speeds consumers are seeking at a price they are willing to pay. A wholesale charge cap will be set by the ACCC and competition would be a vital factor in keeping customer costs low. Under the Coalition plan networks would be upgraded in the most cost‐effective way possible, using the most appropriate technology for a given situation. At the core of an efficient plan is the use of Fibre-to-the-Node technology, which extends fibre to cabinets within a few hundred meters of customer’s houses. The existing copper is then used over the last leg of the network. This removes the need to connect millions of individual houses to the network. Seventy five per cent of the world’s current 644 million broadband subscribers rely on copper for part or all of their connection. The value of broadband is not in its speed or how it is delivered. The value of broadband is in how it can be used to improve your life and your community. With 25 megabits per second a household can run all the applications a modern family needs to be productive and socially connected. -

Meeting to launch health centre plan


ural Northwest Health will release detailed plans for a $9.8-million Warracknabeal campus redevelopment project during a community meeting next month.

Wednesday, June 12, 2013


Football club fundraisers

A Wimmera Health Care Group Foundation support group hopes to forge a partnership with football-netball clubs for a ‘fund-raising fortnight’ next month. The Friends of the Foundation’s Debbie Simpson is asking clubs to organise home-game fund-raisers on weekends starting on July 20 and 27. The foundation raises money through donations, fund-raising and bequests to

fund Wimmera Health Care Group ‘special’ projects and services. “Fund-raising efforts might be raffles, selling something special at the canteen, hosting a luncheon, sausage sizzles or simply rattling tins. We welcome all ideas,” Mrs Simpson said. Club representatives keen to know more can call Debbie Simpson 5382 5801 or email

Thinking of going Solar?

The project is designed to enhance acute, urgent care and community primary care departments to include all health areas in the organisation to one central-access location. Chief executive Catherine Morley is heading a project control group to oversee the master plan. She said Rural Northwest Health was focusing on developing a Warracknabeal campus master plan that would provide infrastructure that was adaptable as well as environmentally and financially sustainable. The Federal Government allocated $8.8-million in its 2012-13 Budget for the project and Rural Northwest Health added $1-million. A proviso of the federal funding is that building construction be complete by May, 2015. Consultants are driving the master planning stage with the project control group, which also includes board members Leo Casey and Patty Kinnersly, the architect, project manager and Department of Health representatives.

Please read this


The committee has focused on developing a master plan that allows: • The 72 beds in aged and acute care are close together to promote staff efficiency, sharing of clinical expertise and resources and to minimise the need for aged-care residents to transfer to the acute unit. • Enhanced community and primary care treatment and consulting rooms along with a large exercise room and if possible a mobility-exercise garden. • One entrance for community members accessing urgent care, acute, aged care and or community and primary care that it is welcoming and, if possible, includes a café and a ‘quiet place’. • The clinical team to be near clini-

cal areas to promote efficiency and sharing of expertise. • Car parking that is close to the entrance point and includes disabled parking. • The improvement of inefficiencies in Yarriambiack Lodge and administration practises. • Building an environmentally sustainable extension that can be expanded easily if required. • The project to meet budget. Ms Morley said the project control group and management board had agreed to continue work-

ing on the master plan to develop working drawings and costs. “Over the next two months the architect will meet with the staff to develop the location details of work spaces and storage and how work practices may flow. The community meeting is set for 6pm, July 15 in the Planned Activity Room at Landt Nursing Home. Ms Morley said the community would be able to review detailed plans while board and executive members would be available to answer questions.

Van rolling into Warracknabeal


arjorie’, BreastScreen Victoria’s mobile screening service will roll into Warracknabeal for the first time this week.

The eye-catching bright pink van will be at Rural NorthWest Health’s Warracknabeal campus from today until tomorrow week. Early this week, more than 175 women had already booked in for a mammogram, which surpassed an initial screening target of 154. District breast-cancer survivor Gayle Jeffrey, 51, diagnosed with the disease in 2001, is a firm advocate of the importance of regular mammograms. “My cancer was quite large and aggressive and I had to have seven lymphnodes removed, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and now Tamoxifen,” Mrs Jeffrey said. “I tell all the women I know to have a mammogram. If they can catch breast cancer early, they might not have to go through what I went through.” Mrs Jeffrey and Rural North-

“There are many people who have being impacted by a loved one having to live with cancer and this service will support our women to take a quick and painless test to ensure that they are healthy and well,” Ms Morley said.

SCREENING VAN: BreastScreen Victoria’s mobile screening service will roll into Warracknabeal.

west Health chief executive Catherine Morley will cut a ribbon and a cake at a celebratory launch at Warracknabeal hospital car park at 10.30am. BreastScreen Victoria encourages women, especially those aged between 50 to 69 have a mammogram. It it is proven they will benefit most benefit from the program. Women from the age of 40 and over 69 are also eligible for a free mammogram once every two years. Ms Morley said she was pleased so many regional women planned to make use of the service.

“Local towns have organised buses to come down to the BreastScreen van to be part of a healthy girls day. Community Health staff will be available to provide information about other health issues as the ladies enjoy a coffee, a slice of cake and their mammogram.” In the meantime, ‘Nina’, BreastScreen Victoria’s other mobile van will be at Birchip until June 27. BreastScreen Victoria aims to screen 470 district women during the visit and early this week has already booked in 297 appointments. The van will be at the Birchip campus of the East Wimmera Health Service on Duncan Street. Women keen to make an appointment can call 13 20 50 or book online at

Super night out full of laughter


he Melbourne International Comedy Festival Roadshow is set to return to the Wimmera, with a big night of comedy from some of the world’s funniest comedians planned for Horsham on June 29.

The show’s cast of travelling comedians, entertaining crowds across Australia, will perform at Wesley Performing Arts Centre. Award-winning Dave Williams is this year’s roadshow master of ceremonies. Some critics have described Williams, working in comedy for more than 15 years, as the James Bond of comedy for his sharp wit and charisma. Williams’ professional yet light-hearted approach to comedy has made him a favourite opener for performers such as Wayne Brady and Michael Buble. His theatrical physicality and tendency to improvise has led him to work alongside the world’s best. He has appeared on all Australian television networks and many radio stations. Williams has played the Melbourne International Comedy Festival since 1999, presenting a new show each year. As well as being involved in the roadshow, he also mentors up-and-coming comedians with MICF Class Clowns. Joining him in Horsham will be the UK’s Zoe Lyons, Nick Cody, Randy and Nath Valvo. Last year’s roadshow included more than 90 performances in more than 60 Australian towns, covering a distance of more than 25,000 kilometres. It also went international with seasons in Singapore, Hong Kong and India. Venue manager Joy Cowie said the comedy roadshow

Art helps good cause

Wednesday, June 12, 2013



painting by artist Glenda King is the major prize on offer in a raffle to raise money for an oven for Wimmera Health Care Group’s Day Centre.

Ms King is also a health group staff member and her painting of a panoramic seascape will be first prize in the raffle. The day centre provides an environment to help frail and socially isolated elderly people and others with dementia and disabilities. Day Centre manager Barry Arnott said he was grateful for Ms King’s donation and said it was sure to attract considerable interest. “It is a beautiful painting and it is a lovely donation. It’s a great thing to see staff who are so passionate about what is done here, that they make an effort like this outside of their working roles,” Mr Arnott said. Second prize in the raffle is a grocery hamper, also filled with staff donations. Ms King said she wanted to help raise money for a new oven because she knew how much it benefited clients at the Day Centre. “They really do need a new oven, and I have seen how much enjoyment Day Centre clients get out of the activities, including in the kitchen, so I thought it was a very worthy cause,” Ms King said. The painting is on display in Wimmera Base Hospital foyer and tickets are for sale at reception and the Day Centre.

Association joins rates debate

Ararat Rural City Residents Association has joined district farmers in a debate on municipal rates, arguing that costs in general are too high. Association president Frank Deutsch from Lake Bolac said farmers were paying too much in rates but ‘so is everyone else’.

He posted on the association website that if Ararat Rural City Council reduced rates overall, ‘everyone will win’. “Please do not be misled by this council with its divideand-conquer budget policy,” he said. “Farmers, we are with you. Yes, you are paying too much

and so is everyone else. “This council must reduce the rates burden for all of us.” Mr Deutsch said he had written to state Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell with a request to reduce the rates burden to 90 percent of the 2012-13 year. “Section 185B of the Local


government Act gives the minister the power to restrict council’s unquenchable desire to increase rates,” Mr Deutsch said. “I am awaiting her response,” he said. Mr Deutsch said anyone keen to find out more about the association could visit website

The ‘own occupation’ definition is usually only available to people in professional white-collar jobs. Some policies provide other definitions of disablement such as loss of limbs, blindness or inability to perform the activities of daily living. There is a natural tendency to look for the lowest premium in selecting insurance. With Total and Permanent Disablement cover, being sure the policy definitions are appropriate for your circumstances is absolutely vital. There is no point having a policy that does not pay out when you need it. You should consider your options carefully and consult with your financial adviser before making a decision.

Answers: 1. Beulah. 2. Rainbow. 3. False. Toads are native to all continents except Australia and Antarctica. 4. Port Phillip District, a division of the Colony of NSW. The district existed from 1836 until 1851 before the formation of the Colony of Victoria. 5. In your inner ear. Your body uses them to drain fluid from the area. 6. B . What appears to be a sting is in fact a clasper that males use to hold onto females when mating. A, C and D are true. 7. They are first cousins. Sebastian’s mother and Jobe’s father are brother and sister. 8. A. 18. 9. Cub Scouts. The winner was 10-year-old Lachlan Downie. 10. True.


But what will your quality of life be like if you can no longer earn an income? You will need money to pay off debts, support your family, pay medical bills, and support your lifestyle. Most life-insurance policies will allow you to buy extra cover for just this event. It’s called a Total and Permanent Disablement or TPD benefit. It is usually offered to working people between ages 16 and 65 and some policies provide cover for homemakers. A policy can be arranged privately or through a superannuation fund. The benefit is paid as a lump sum.

Like all insurance policies, it is important to understand when the benefit will be payable. This is particularly important with TPD cover where the life office will pay out where it is unlikely you will ever be able to work again – but what does that mean? To qualify for payment you will generally need to have been off work for at least six months because of the disability. You will be required to lodge medical reports from your own doctors and be examined by the insurer’s medical specialists. Depending on the wording of the policy, the insurer will decide if you can work again in: 1. your own occupation or 2. any occupation.

Answers: 1. Boobiallas. 2. True. A horse-drawn tramway crossed the Wimmera Bridge and transported products and people between Horsham and McKenzie Creek from 1885 to 1927. 3. 125. 4. Jardwajali. 5. Cr Wayne Rice. 6. Electric amplifiers. 7. A solar eclipse. While we experienced a partial eclipse, Cairns briefly plunged into darkness with a total eclipse. 8. Fly-in, Fly out. Northern Grampians Shire Council is urged workers to apply for FIFO mine positions at Cobar, NSW. 9. Gason in Ararat. 10. Woorak.


Winter is here! The days are cold and the need to hibernate is upon us. If you have the opportunity, go to bed earlier and sleep a little longer in the morning because you need to build up your immune system for the onslaught of viruses in the form of colds and flu’s.  A healthy immune system is your best investment against avoiding illness altogether. From a Naturopathic perspective there are some simple but important things you can do. Your first step is to address areas of your lifestyle that may weaken your immune system.  Lack of sleep, stress, and toxins such as cigarettes, caffeine, sugar (one teaspoon of sugar can suppress your immune system by up to six hours) and chronic diseases all decrease your body’s ability to maintain an effective immune response. • Improve your diet by eating lots of fresh, organic vegies and fruit (a natural form of sugar), as well as herbs such as ginger, gar-

lic, parsley, basil, rosemary, coriander and turmeric. Try juicing vegetables to increase your daily intake and boost your immune system. • Drink plenty of pure, filtered water every day, the suggested amount is 30ml per kilogram of bodyweight.  Drink herbal tea, Tea for Health Immuni-tea, green tea or hot water with lemon in the cooler months to keep your intake up. • Exercise daily, walking only 45 minutes per day can lower the incidence of upper respiratory symptoms, cut the duration of illness in half and increase natural killer-cell activity in people prone to upper respiratorytract infections. Remember to also air your

office as well as your home even in the cooler months. Essential oils can also keep germs at bay. Use two or three in a blend, include: eucalyptus, lemon, cedarwood, peppermint, tea tree, lemongrass, basil, rosewood, sandalwood and grapefruit. •Get adequate sleep; try for at least eight hours.  Almost 80 percent of the population is sleep deprived. Getting adequate rest allows the immune system to repair and be in top condition. • Get your vitamin D levels checked with your GP, your levels should be 100 or higher for healthy immunity. • Watch some funny movies with friends and have a good belly laugh.  Laughter helps reduce stress and supports your immune system. • Finally, herbal medicines such as echinacea and andrographis are fabulous herbs used to prevent colds and flu and are also to be taken when you have a cold or flu to shorten the length of time you are unwell. As a preventative, herbs such as astragalus and Siberian ginseng are used to strengthen the immune system and build your energy levels but are not to be taken during acute illnesses such as colds and flu’s.

Tournament’s big changes


rung Golf Club’s annual tournament program, which started yesterday and continues until Sunday, includes major changes and new events.

Club president John Scott said early-season watering of tees and sandscrape verges had led to enjoyable playing conditions for the start of the 2013 season. “Now with fairways responding to rain, we expect the course, fairways and improved scrapes to play very well for the

tournament,” Mr Scott said. The most notable program change is the addition of women’s 18hole scratch and handicap singles events on Saturday. “We’re looking to give women golfers the opportunity to play more singles tournaments on Wimmera sandscrape courses,” Mr Scott said. Saturday will also feature 18-hole men’s scratch and handicap singles events. “The men’s and ladies singles events will be

graded to cater for golfers of all handicaps,” Mr Scott said. Yesterday’s women’s pinehurst also returned to the tournament after an absence. Other regular tournament events include men and women’s four-ball best-ball stableford events on Friday and a three-person ambrose on Sunday. Ambrose teams can be mixed, men’s or women’s teams. Players assemble at 10am for a 10.30am hitoff for all events in the tournament..

Wimmera exports Tom McDonald and Rory Taggert are among Melbourne footballers leading AFL junior clinics in Warracknabeal and Hopetoun today. They will join Jack Trengove, Jeremy Howe, Don Barry, Sam Blease and Shannon Byrnes at Hopetoun reserve this morning before travelling to Warracknabeal’s Anzac Park this afternoon.

Hammer thrower fifth Dimboola hammer thrower Emma Werner marked her rapid progression in one of the toughest Olympic field sports by placing fifth in open competition at the Oceania Games in Tahiti. The Australian representative matched her placing from 2012 Games but with an improved performance. Werner recorded a best throw of 36.93

metres in the finals without any fouls, eclipsing her 2012 personal best of 34.84.

Dream is coming true H

orsham owner-breeder Worrall Dunn enjoyed great success at last week’s Swan Hill Carnival.

Worrall won one of the feature events, the Elvstroem Classic over 1300 metres with his emerging filly May’s Dream. Trained by Ballarat trainer Darren Weir, the two-year-old chestnut filly looked a top chance to take out the event after an eyecatching debut at Donald a fortnight earlier. Former WA apprentice jockey Damien Lane was in charge of riding duties and when the starting stalls flew open May’s Dream took a position back in the field with young Lane adopting a patient approach. As the field of juvenile neddies thundered around the home turn the daughter of New Approach was given clear galloping room. In a dazzling display of acceleration

Football appeal hearing

AFL Victoria Country’s independent Appeals Board is most likely to hear a case involving Nhill coach Darren Weavell in Melbourne next week. North West football manager Bruce Petering confirmed yesterday that the appeals process was underway. “Details of the case are being assessed at the moment,” he said. Nhill Football Club has risked a $5500 hearing cost to take Weavell’s case to the hearing. The move follows Western Vic Football tribunal’s decision to suspend Weavell until December 21, 2020. The tribunal found him and Stawell goal umpire Robert Morris guilty of ‘conduct unbecoming’ charges after a physical confrontation between the pair at Stawell’s Central Park on May 11.

that would rival New Approach’s mother, Melbourne Cup second place getter She’s Archie, May’s Dream powered to the line to score victory by a length. This maiden victory rocketed her stake earnings to $103,000 and one would think there would be a nice race for this girl during the upcoming Melbourne Spring Carnival. There are exciting times on the horizon for the Horsham connections.

Koe in Flemington Success

Stawell trainers Terry and Karina O’Sullivan have been enjoying a great couple of months and their purple patch continued at Flemington last Saturday. The O’Sullivan stable had last-start Adelaide winner Koe engaged in a 1400-metre event carrying a prize purse of $100,000 with SA jockey Matthew Neilson again in the saddle. Melbournian punters rated Koe a top chance on course at 4-1 just before the start. When the starter released the field Koe quickly took up a commanding position, landing in the box seat just behind the leaders. Matthew Neilson showed a level head

throughout the event, not overwhelmed by the occasion of racing on the big stage. As the capacity field rounded the home turn the daughter of Kiwi stallion Align looked to be bolting and was waiting for a clear run to appear. Once well into the home straight Koe got the inside run and under hard riding from her hoop fought off all challenges despite looking like a spent force 200 metres from the post. In a huge display of tenacity Koe kicked strongly and got the chocolates in one of the toughest performances you’ll see. On the strength of this win more metropolitan successes for Koe and her trainers would not surprise.

In Brief…

• Horsham-based jockey Holly McKechnie booted home Savvy Smokin in the last event at Swan Hill on Friday. • Last week leading Horsham hoop Dean Yendall saluted on Persian Punter at the Geelong Synthetic Track and his wife Christine Puls also won aboard Ringa Tin Tin at the same meeting. Horse to follow… May’s Dream looks to have a huge future. Watch this space!

SPORt report

Injuries dictating ladder leadership I


njuries might well be pivotal to who earns top spot on Horsham District Football League ladder as well as outright premiership favouritism as the top two sides look for a psychological edge against each other this week.

We know they will both finish in the top three but the battle for top spot is well and truly alive. Kalkee will probably have close to its best line-up while EdenhopeApsley continue to be plagued by injuries and seem to add one or two each week to the list. Both sides boast quality midfields and the battle between the likes of Dave McLeish and Brent Christie against Steve Schultz and Simon Hobbs will be worth watching. The match will be determined by who wins the fight between the Kalkee half forwards and EdenhopeApsley’s half backline. The Saints’ halfbacks, led by the irrepressible Chris Oliver and Jeremy Kealy hold the key. If they can limit the output of Grant Schultz and Brendan McDonald and make Schultz push up the ground the backmen will have done their jobs. If the Saints can’t control the contest then they might struggle to contain Adam Carter and Josh Beddison.

Top five

Pimpinio, chasing its second win welcomes Natimuk to Tigerland with the visitors keen to secure victory bounce back into the top five. Pimpinio would love to have Pat Barber available again this week. The talented big man is versatile and if he controls the halfback the likes of Sam Turmine and Dylan Baker will have more opportunities in front

of the sticks. Natimuk’s defence, led by interleague representatives Callum Cameron and Tim Friend, has been solid all season Cam Ellis and Alex Hill have been solid contributors for Pimpinio all season but the Tigers will have to find a way to get first hands on the ball. Rams ruckman Simon Mentz and Bryce Hatelely should give the likes of Ash Pekin, Jono Hornsby and Jamie Elliott first use.

Close games

Fourth and fifth clash at Quantong with fifth-placed Noradjuha-Quantong taking on Swifts and the loser will find itself outside the top five. These sides seem to have close games every time they meet and Swifts enjoy playing at the Bombers’ home ground. The contest might end up being a shootout between key forwards. Sam Weddell, Adam Hall and inform Shane Oakley hold the key for the Bombers. Oakley has been a revelation up forward and the Baggies’ defence will need to be aware that he doesn’t need many possessions to impact the game. At the opposite end of the ground Jeremy Joiner looms large; the big forward uses his bulk to great effect and Lachie Wilson or Brady King will need to play a few metres off him and use their leap to spoil the big forward. Scott Carey, Paul Hanns and Sean Mantell provide plenty of speed for the Baggies and Ricky Whitehead is still the x-factor who can win a game off his own boot. It will be no easier week for Taylors Lake with Laharum visiting Dock Lake Reserve and searching

for a percentage-boosting win. Shannon Argall kicked 18 goals when the teams last met and the Lakers defence led by Luke Robertson will be working overtime to stop a repeat of the carnage. Aaron Lewis, Craig Britten and Jason Weir will battle manfully for the Lakers around the stoppages but the trio lack the speed to curtail the likes of Robbie Miller, Daniel Easson and Tom Inverarity. Taylors Lake lacks height in defence and the Demons have plenty of height in Ben Peucker, Argall, Keegan Mason and Jason Przibilla. Taylors Lake has acquired a few new faces in the last couple of weeks in Sam Rintoule and Marcus Kickett while Tim Kelm gives them muchneeded experience but they will be overpowered by the Demons.

High stakes

Balmoral hosts another intriguing game with Harrow-Balmoral and Rupanyup sitting outside the five by percentage. One of these sides should be inside the five come the end of Saturday, so the stakes are high. The midfield battle will be a highlight with Rupanyup’s Nathan Sasche and in-and-under Glenn Wyatt needing to be at their best to prevent Josh Vickery giving the Roos such as Brent Forsyth, David Vickery and Will Plush first use of the ball. Rupanyup will be desperate to get Drew Tyler back into the side. His drive, creativity and speed are crucial and without him the Panthers’ forward line loses a spark. In the Harrow-Balmoral forward half the vital duel will be between veteran Brent Penny and Panthers full back Paul Trotter.

Rested and ready to go after long weekend A


fter a break for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend Mininera and District Football League will be back in action this weekend with all teams rested and ready to go to take on the last 10 rounds of the season.

SMW Rovers will host Penshurst in what should be a well fought-out match. SMW Rovers, sitting third on the ladder, have had a good start to the season having only one loss and a draw blemishing the record. However, the next three weeks will

test them as they take on the other three of the top four teams. In its last match, SMW Rovers had a 36-point win over Ararat. In a wet game the Bulldogs kicked three late goals in the first quarter to set up a lead and it wasn’t until a four-goal-to-one final quarter that they clinched the contest. Rovers’ inaccuracy in front of goal was again a concern and showed the potential of hurting the side in big games. Coach Rhys Cahir led his team with four goals, while Ricky Coyle, John Forbes and Tim Cleeland thrived in the wet.

Penshurst, sitting two points behind Rovers on the ladder, will be keen for a victory to move up and secure its place in the top three. In its last game Penshurst had an easy 159-point win over Woorndoo Mortlake, Christopher Eales shining for the Bombers with nine goals. Rory Neeson and Andrew Behncke were also among the better players for Penshurst and will all be looking to fire in Saturday’s match.

Form side

In-form Tatyoon, travels to Glenthompson to take on the Rams. Tatyoon’s latest victory was over Lis-

more-Derrinallum to the tune of more than six goals. Aidan Bell was once again instrumental in front of goals, kicking five with Mitchell and Tyler Cronin also contributing with three and two respectively. Timothy and Sean McDougall were the better players for Tatyoon and have been for most of the season. After finally getting some wins on the board Tatyoon will certainly be one to keep an eye on in coming weeks. Glenthompson-Dunkeld’s season has taken a fall with three losses in a row. Its most recent loss was by four goals to Moyston-Willaura.

Matthew Augustinus was a shining light for the Rams, kicking four goals, while Matthew Wishart, Scott Day and Tom Blackford were all among the best. This Saturday will certainly prove to be a major challenge as another loss could see it drop out of the four. In wrapping up round nine, Lismore-Derrinallum takes on Hawkesdale-Macarthur, Great Western plays Woorndoo-Mortlake and MoystonWillaura Pumas travel to Caramut to take on the Swans. Undefeated Wickliffe-Lake Bolac will be looking to continue its dominance when it plays Ararat.

Saints’ pain won’t end with Roos S


orry Horsham Saints. You are going to be swept away two weeks in a row in Wimmera Football League, only this time it will be in a sea of green and gold.

It seemed nothing was going to stop the Saints’ charge through the season until the men from Coughlin Park came up against a resurgent Horsham last weekend. The big win to the reigning premier in front of an equally as big crowd on Sunday was a disaster for the Saints who now travel north-west up the highway to meet what appears an even better Dimboola side. While it is still early days, pre-season predictions that Dimboola would be the team to beat this season might be coming true. While Horsham turned up the heat on the Saints last week, the Roos were no less forgiving against Minyip-Murtoa, comprehensively thumping the Burras by 88 points at Murtoa. Goal-front efficiency, for many years a Dimboola Achilles heel, is no longer an issue. In fact, it is the Roos’ potency in the forward 50 that seems to be rattling all-comers. One-grab Lachie Exell kicked seven goals last week and Ash Clugston, in a ripper season back in the competition, another six while big, strong Jackson O’Neill, three goals, continued to soak up defensive pressure. But there is more to the Dimboola game than its finishers. Running Andrew Seers has added a new dimen-

sion to the Dimboola mid-field list and Ryan Bell has evolved into one of the most damaging front-and-centre runners in the competition. Throw in balanced Hamish Exell, linkman Clancy Bennett, unflappable springboard Daniel Baker, tireless ruckman Justin Chilver and dogged Matt and Tom Magee and the side looks a beauty. Last week’s results showed signs that injuries and player unavailability has finally starting take its toll on the Saints. It won’t help that rugged Phil Butsch went down with a leg injury last week and important ruckman Anthony Rowe went off after landing heavily. Coach Brendan Broadbent remained philosophical about the Saints’ ability to bounce back. “I was gutted last week to be truthful. But having said that, we’ve had big beatings in the past and, in understanding that leg speed is a factor, we will have seven blokes coming back at some stage,” he said. It was the familiar names of Garry Hallam, Heath Watson and Gavin Kelm, who kicked five goals, that appeared on best-player lists last week. Dennis Adams and Nathan Clough were also good.

Back on song

Last Sunday’s result might have let the Demons off the leash which means watch-out Minyip-Murtoa on Saturday. Forward Dylan Parish all but tore the game apart last week with seven

goals and had plenty of partners in crime. Youngster Rhona Conboy continues his impressive evolution, playmaker Tyler Blake was again outstanding from defence and Alex Thomson again slipped under the opposition guard. Burly Ryan O’Connor also enjoyed mixing it in the clinches. Minyip-Murtoa has to bounce back strongly to regain momentum but the Burras’ running game will have a mighty test against Horsham. Braydon Ison will score if he can get enough of the footy which means players such as Kirsten Hunter, Liam Newell, Gus Trethowan and Jayden Beaumont must back themselves.

John and Chris Delahunty and Zach Cross won accolades last week and Clinton Midgley remains a significant weapon on his day.


Warrack Eagles need to regroup for an important match against Ararat in Warracknabeal after weathering a legitimate test against Horsham RSL. The Eagles look dangerous when they can find space but Tim Inkster’s men appeared shaky in close. The Eagles, however, will win well against the Rats, particularly if talented Brad Krahe, Jason Hinkley and Jarred Martin can get their hands on the ball. Key-position player Peter Weir was

also on song last outing and it’s hard to see Ararat finding an adequate match-up. Nic Maddison, Brady Miller and goal-kicking James Laidlaw attracted votes for Ararat last game and rover Alan Batchelor also continued good form. At Stawell, meanwhile, everything will be on the line for the hometown Warriors and visiting Horsham RSL Diggers. Stawell had the benefit of bye last week while the Diggers had a fighting 23-point loss against the Eagles. This game could go either way, although the Diggers might have found some elusive team form.

Eight-goal effort helps Cats claw into top four By MICK SHANNON

Woomelang-Lascelles has worked its way into Mallee Football League’s top four after a 45-point victory over Ouyen United. The Cats were too strong all over the ground for the Demons with Corey Kelly dominating up forward with eight goals. Walpeup-Underbool proved too strong for Hopetoun, while Beulah smashed Jeparit-Rainbow to the tune of 202 points. This weekend’s match of the round is at Beulah with the Blues battling last year’s premier Walpeup-Underbool. Beulah will be flying after its mas-

sive win and coaches Gareth Hose and Tom Hallam will be impressed with the range of goal-kickers the Blues were able to produce. Walpeup-Underbool is starting to get its full team on the park and is finding its feet after a slow start to the season. Josh Charles has led the way for the Roos in the ruck, while Kane Munro has been finding plenty of the ball through the midfield. Wade Champion will pose a serious threat up forward for the Roos and the Blues will turn to Kim Hallam to curb his influence. Through the midfield the Blues will have the advantage with Shaun Monohan coming off a 40-plus-possession


P: (03) 5382 2366

game while Tyler Lehmann and Micah Buchanan have been dominating clearances. Luke Nathan and Ben Fisher will need to have big games to gain control in the middle. This will be a great game that will show off both teams’ pace and skill. The Blues are firing though, and will use the home-ground advantage to win by 24 points.

Searching for win

Hopetoun, still searching for its first win of the season, welcomes Sea Lake-Nandaly Tigers to Hopetoun. Last week Hopetoun’s first quarter let the side down but the Devils managed to win two of the four quarters. Luke Carr again led the way with a

seven-goal performance and will need to have another big game if the Devils are going to be any chance of winning. The Tigers are brimming with talent though, with Col Durie and Darcy Ryan controlling the midfield while Stephen Lyons and Tom Summerhayes have been dominating in half back. Zac Robins has been in terrific form for Hopetoun in defence and will need his fellow defenders to step up to stop powerful Tigers forwards Cliff Ryan and Wes Harrison. The last time these two met, it was the Tigers who won by 10 points. I expect the result to be much the same. Woomelang-Lascelles travels to

Be part of Breuers

Rainbow to take on Jeparit-Rainbow. The Cats produced their best performance of the year last round while the Lakers their worst. Corey Kelly dominated for the Cats and the Lakers will need to find a tagger to curb his influence. Trent Donnan will also pose problems for the Lakers in the middle while Joel Donnan has been in good form at centre half back. Heath Clugston will always perform well for Jeparit-Rainbow while Adam Schulz and Andrew Watson will give their all. The Cats will prove to be too strong and will win by seven goals. Ouyen United has the bye.

Lexus will expand hybrid car varieties


exus Australia believes hybrid vehicles may account for half of all its sales inside five years, as it gears up for the introduction of three new petrol-electric offerings.

more cabin storage, and included a blind-spot monitor and rear traffic alert system. GM has also added idle-stop to its base 145kW/253Nm 2.5-litre engine for fuel economy gains of five per cent, re-calibrated the flagship 193kW/400Nm 2.0-litre turbo engine to produce about 14 per cent more torque, and tweaked the dampers to keep it flatter in the corners. Holden’s versions - to be built in South Korea - will get none of these changes, but director of external communications Craig Cheetham says most wouldn’t apply to our market anyway. Our versions will be powered by either 2.4-litre petrol or 2.0-litre turbodiesel engines, and will already have their own Australian-specific suspension tune and unique Lion-badged grille design. As reported, the Malibu will replace the unloved Epica in the mid-size segment, and take on rivals such as the Toyota Camry and Mazda6.


hevrolet has fast-tracked a facelift for its Malibu midsizer in response to slow US sales, but the changes won’t apply to Australia’s Holden-badged versions when they launch next week.

The company said further expansion into the petrol-electric hybrid market was a crucial part of its ambitious plan to close the gap to its German rivals. The brand announced plans to add another two hybrid variants to its range by early next year: the ES300h midsized sedan and a new entry version of the larger GS, called the GS300h. The new volume-selling IS range will also be replaced in July, and the company has already confirmed it will offer the first hybrid version of that car. By next year, the company will sell seven hybrid variants across six model lines, the CT200h, IS300h, ES300h, GS300h, GS450h, LS600h and RX450h. In other words, every member of the Japanese company’s range will be available with a hybrid option, with the exception of the niche Toyota LandCruiser-based LX off-roader. Hybrids already account for a greater proportion of Lexus’ sales here than any other brand - at around 30 per cent - but the company is confident this fig-

Corolla takes the lead By MIKE COSTELLO


ustralia has a new most popular car, with the Toyota Corolla overtaking the Mazda3 as the year-todate sales leader after a bumper May result.

VFACTS figures show Toyota racked up 3640 new registrations for Corolla last month, taking its YTD tally at the end of May to 16,774 units. This puts Corolla up 10.2 per cent on last year and now 369 units clear of the Mazda3, which has been unable to maintain its record sales pace. It managed 3054 sales last month but that was 7.1 per cent off May last year, and YTD Mazda’s small hero car is down 8.3 per cent.

But neither small car led the field for the month of May, with Toyota’s HiLux utility taking top spot with 3665 sales, which sees it closing in on 16,000 sales for the year thus far and in a strong position to challenge for outright leadership in the second half of the year. Away from the battle for small-car honours and the market-leading model, the serious action was in the small and compact SUV markets, with Australia’s love of high-riding softies continuing to grow unabated. Sales were up by 18.3 per cent and 22.1 per cent in each segment respectively against May 2012, with the Hyundai ix35 (1770) and Mazda CX-5

POPULAR: The Toyota Corolla is Australia’s most popular car after bumper May sales.

(1773) both extending their overall lead. In fact, it was strong SUV sales that kept the Australian new-vehicle market in the positive compared to May last year, since both passenger car and light commercial sales fell 3.1 per cent and 0.9 per cent respectively. Other interesting trends included the continued fall in diesel-powered passenger car sales, both private (down 11.3 per cent) and fleet (down 22.8 per cent), while sharp drops were

also seen in both government and rental sales across the board. Notwithstanding a 7.0 per cent drop in sales for the month, Toyota maintained its dominance as the market leader with 19,003 monthly sales, which places it lineball with last year with just shy of 84,000 sales YTD (down 0.5 per cent). Holden took back second place in May with 8293 sales, ahead of Mazda (8135), Hyundai (8027) and Ford (7293).

Rounding out the top 10 was Mitsubishi (7011 sales, up 36.0 per cent), Nissan (5928), Volkswagen (5527), Honda (3625) and Subaru (3612). It was again a gloomy month for Australianmade cars, with Toyota’s Camry the only model showing growth compared to May last year. Camry sales were up 4.5 per cent to 1934 units, enough to give it 38.3 per cent of the entire sub-$60K mediumcar segment. It too early to tell what

impact Ford’s announcement that it will close its plants here in 2016 will have on Falcon sales, but the company’s decision was underlined by a meagre 707 units rolling out of showrooms last month – down 39.9 per cent. Holden’s runout VE Commodore was also down 34.7 per cent to 1647 units, but expect a boost from the new VF, which went on sale June 1. Despite the slight drops in overall passenger sales, there were still some notable performers. For instance, the Hyundai i20 stormed to the top of the light-car market in May thanks to monthly sales growth of 165.4 per cent over last year (1282). The Toyota 86 extended its lead as Australia’s sportscar of choice with 582 sales, giving it almost twice as many sales for the year as its nearest rival Ð the Hyundai Veloster. In the luxury race, the BMW 3 Series narrowly shaded the MercedesBenz C-Class (528 sales to 523 – both up on the same month last year). But the Silver Arrows got its own back in the premium-small segment, with

the A-Class (301 sales) and B-Class (372 sales) topping all comers. Notable losers in the passenger market included the Honda Jazz (down 45.8 per cent), Suzuki Alto (down 59.0 per cent), Subaru Impreza (down 52.1 per cent), Mitsubishi Lancer (down 46.5 per cent), Honda Accord Euro (down 81.6 per cent) and Ford Mondeo (down 33.5 per cent). It wasn’t just the ix35 and CX-5 that performed well in the SUV market, with the Audi Q3 the most popular premium smallSUV with 255 sales (up 59.4 per cent). Audi also had the most popular medium SUV, with its Q5 beating both the BMW X3 and Range Rover Evoque with 296 sales. Toyota’s Prado was again the most popular large SUV (1499 sales), ahead of the Territory and Holden Captiva. Other notable performers included the Jeep Patriot (up 46.1 per cent), Ford Kuga (up 457.1 per cent thanks to the launch of a more affordable newgeneration model) and Hyundai Santa Fe (up 20.6 per cent).

Kia’s new-look Rondo ia has given its Rondo compact people-mover a wholesale redesign in line with its sharper new image, but the makeover comes at a price.

While sharper to behold and better-equipped than ever before, the price of entry to the new, automatic-only version is also $4000 higher than its base (manual) predecessor, at $29,990 plus on-road costs. This means the compact Korean has lost its crown as the cheapest seven-seater on the Australian market, with Fiat’s larger Freemont able to be optioned with three rows of seats for $28,500 drive-away. While the Rondo has been a niche model at best since it went on sale in Australia in 2008, the aggressive Korean car-maker has bigger plans for the latest version. Kia is predicting global sales of compact people-movers such as the Rondo to grow from 1.9 million units in 2012 to 2.5 million by 2015, and expects to build 105,000 units of this new Rondo per year, up from 420,000 total units of the old version. The Rondo you see here has been styled in-line with other recent Kia models such as the mid-size Optima, Sportage SUV and Cerato

TIGER: The new Kia Rondo takes on the South Korean car-maker’s latest design language, including the ‘tiger-nose’ grille.

small sedan, in that it features the now-familiar ‘tiger-nose’ grille that has become a brand trademark. The rounded front end, snub nose and clean rear-end design of the new model give the impression of a large hatchback, rather than a traditional MPV. It’s 20mm shorter, 15mm narrower and 40mm lower than the model it replaces, but has a 50mm longer wheelbase. The front passenger seat backrest in the mid-spec SLi and flagship Platinum variants can be folded forwards, while the second row seats can be split folded 35/30/35 and slid forwards for greater access to the third row. The very back row features a 50/50 split and the seats can be

stowed under the floor of the boot for greater cargo space. Kia has boosted the entire Rondo line-up from two variants with one engine to three variants and a choice of both petrol and diesel powertrains. The base Si kicks off the range from $29,990 for the petrol and $32,490 for the diesel. Moving up to the SLi takes the price out to $33,990 for the petrol or $36,490 for the diesel. Strangely, the flagship Platinum is available in petrol only from $38,990. The new 2.0-litre four-cylinder GDI petrol engine gives the Rondo a power boost from 106kW in the outgoing model to 122kW, while torque is also up from 189Nm to

Aston Martin unveils the V12 Vantage S By TIM NICHOLSON


ritish brand Aston Martin has ripped the covers off the new V12 Vantage S - its second-fastest production car.

The V12 Vantage S, which replaces the standard V12 Vantage, has a tweaked version of the 6.0-litre V12 engine, with power boosted by 11 per cent and torque up nine per cent. Aston Martin has surprised some by ditching the six-speed manual gearbox in favour of an updated version of the automated manual transmission

found in the V8 Vantage S. The new transmission is 25kg lighter than the outgoing gearbox and includes paddle shifters. Interestingly, the British car-maker has not revealed a 0-100km/h sprint time, but it is expected to better the outgoing model’s 4.2

seconds. Top speed grows from 305km/h to 330km/h. Only the super-exclusive One-77 hypercar, that pumps out 559kW from its massive 7.3-litre naturallyaspirated V12 and sprints to 100km/h in 3.7s, can better it. A new three-stage adap-

tive damping system has been added to the Vantage, allowing the driver to tailor the dynamic performance of the car by choosing either ‘normal’, ‘sport’ or ‘track’ mode. A new grille designfeatures black carbon-fibre mesh to help maximize

airflow to the engine. New 10-spoke lightweight alloy wheels and two-tone paint cap off the exterior updates. The carbon-fibre theme continues in the cabin, with optional carbon-fibre interior pack. Interior updates also include new sports seats, revised stitching, two leather options and the availability of Alacantra. Australian pricing for the V12 Vantage is $386,391, and the S it is likely to end up north of $400,000. Expect Australia’s debut of the V12 Vantage S in the first quarter of next year.

POWERFUL: The Jaguar XFR-S joins thE 300kmh club.

This Jaguar has real bite J


aguar has put the Germans on notice, with its fastest and most powerful sedan to date poised to hit our shores later this year.

Called the XFR-S and priced at $222,545 (plus onroad costs), the 404kW/ 680Nm super-sedan is a genuine rival to the likes of BMW’s M5 and the MercedesBenz E63 AMG. The hottest ever four-seater Jag first showed off its tyre-shredding performance at the Goodwood global debut earlier this year with Le Mans 24hr winner Andy Wallace at the wheel - and now we know when it’s coming Down Under. Revised engine management and improved breathing boost the 5.0-litre supercharged V8 output by 29kW/55Nm over the lesser XFR, accounting for a top speed of 300km/h and zero to 100km/h time of just 4.6 seconds. Originally developed for the F-Type, Jaguar’s ‘Quickshift’ transmission is operated via paddle shifters on the steering wheel and uses adaptive technology to alter gearshift aggressiveness and engine rev limit point. The eight-speed transmission sends this increased power to the widened Pirelli-shod 20-inch rear wheels, while suspension revisions developed through testing at Germany’s Nurburgring help keep the big cat on the blacktop. Modified bodywork and the addition of a carbon-fibre diffuser visually hint at the XFR-S’ performance, but also reduce lift by a claimed 68 per cent. More induction sound from the V8 is piped through to the passenger cabin but, for passengers who like a different sort of music, an 18-speaker 825W Trifield sound system comes as standard. Other interior changes continue include exclusive carbon-effect leather adorning the seat bolsters and armrests, and ‘Dark Aluminium’ highlights on the fascia. Seat stitching and piping can also be matched to the exterior paint on request. Chief program engineer Andrew Whyman said the main challenge in developing the XFR-S was ‘to extend the considerable dynamic abilities common to the entire XF rangeÓ. The first examples of the new Jaguar XFR-S will begin arriving in Australia at the end of 2013 and will be builtto-order only.

213Nm. Fuel use in petrol variants has improved over the previous model with a combined figure of 7.9 litres per 100km, down from 8.6L/100km, while CO2 emissions have been reduced from 208g/km to 184g/km. The 1.7-litre diesel option produces 100kW and 320Nm of torque with combined fuel use of 6.4L/100km and CO2 emissions of 170g/km. All variants are mated exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission that features a ‘Sport’ mode for clutchless manual driving, while paddle shifters are available on higher spec models. The Rondo is yet to be crash tested by ANCAP, but the compact people mover features the usual suite of standard safety gear as well as six airbags and three-point seat-belts for all occupants. If the Rondo manages to achieve a maximum five-star crash safety rating, it will have a local advantage over the four-star ANCAP (but five-star Euro NCAP) Fiat Freemont. Despite the price gain, the Rondo beats larger competitors such as the Dodge Journey that kicks off at $32,400, the newly released Peugeot 5008 that starts from $36,990 for the petrol model and Citroen’s C4 Picasso that retails for $39,490.
