Horsham College students Patrick Laffy, left, and Jeremy Hernon show cheeky delight after getting their heads shaved during the school’s inaugural Purple Day. The occasion, a fundraising lead-up to Horsham Cancer Council Relay for Life last weekend, reflected a record number of school children involved in relay activities. Of the 1087 participants in the relay this year about 500 were children in school teams. Early this week organisers expected money raised from this year’s relay to creep past the $150,000 mark.

Event depth, diversity shows regional health A


regional development leader believes the number and diverse nature of major regional events across the region are providing a positive snapshot of healthy communities. Wimmera Development Association executive director Jo Bourke said events such as Horsham Country Music Festival, set to attract big crowds this weekend, were solid socio-economic indicators. She said large events and community activities usually required many people to volunteer their services which then led to considerable socialising, networking, celebrating and promotion.

“It brings visitors to the region and lifts the regional profile by telling a simple story that, in essence, this is a nice place to live.” Horsham Country Music Festival, featuring a lengthy list of professional and amateur artists, kicks off today and continues until Sunday. An ACE Radio Country Music Spectacular at Sawyer Park on Saturday headlines the weekend.

Stimulant Horsham Mayor David Grimble agreed that the country music festival would be a major economic stimulant for Horsham.

“These types of events are very positive indicators of very healthy communities,” she said.

“It’s establishing itself as a great community event and being based at Sawyer Park it promotes one of the best aspects of our city. These sort of events are super,” he said.

“With the country music festival there is an obvious economic benefit with people coming to visit and staying a few days plus the stimulus from activity provided by local groups with catering, event management and logistics.

“We’re exposing the region to a whole

Mrs Bourke added that the diversity of regional festivals and events, the products of localised expertise and imagination, were guaranteeing different audiences at each event.





range of different types of visitors. We already have tourist-focused people coming to look at say the Grampians or the Little Desert. They are now being engaged in sporting, musical or cultural events from one end of the region to the other,” she said. While the country music festival unfolds in Horsham, Lake Bolac will present its huge cultural and environment Eel Festival. Minyip Dinkledoodledum Festival and Show and Natimuk Show are is also on this weekend. They follow highly popular Horsham Fishing Contest and Ararat’s Jailhouse Rock festival, a When the Flood Came concert at Rupanyup and continue to pave the way for events such as Warracknabeal’s Easter Y Fest. Mrs Bourke: “These social and cultural activities and events are all critical parts of the regional development jigsaw. As they gain momentum their participation levels and standards increase, painting a vibrant picture of the region.”

College leaders Paint with passion step up re-build


orsham College community leaders have stepped up their campaign to convince the State Government to put money aside in its next State Budget to start rebuilding the school.

College school council president Rowan Smith said it was critical that Horsham district people continued to back a ‘Just Build It’ fight for college redevelopment. He said in a letter to The Weekly Advertiser: “As the May Budget draws closer we are calling on Horsham and district people to support our ongoing fight. “Horsham is the capital of the Wimmera. It has a thriving service and retail industry and its farmers use 21st Century equipment to grow and harvest crops. “Should we accept having 1000 secondary students being educated in crumbling facilities, some dating back to the Second World War?” Horsham College, which runs campuses on former Horsham high and technical

school sites, has plans to consolidate the whole school on the technical school site. Plans include maintaining use of key Dimboola Road facilities including I.O. Maroske Hall and sports oval. The overall project, designed to be built in stages, is likely to cost $20-million.

Unique Mr Smith said the council clearly understood that many schools across Victoria were seeking upgrades but believed that the Horsham request was both unique and urgent. “Our students are required to walk for up to 10 minutes between classes between the two campuses in 40-degree heat and rain and cold. That’s not good for healthy children or healthy learning,” he said. “Most class rooms were built in the 1960s and 1970s and have passed their use-by dates. Many rooms are crumbling, being eaten by white ants and have succumbed to the harsh Wimmera climate and unstable soils – on top of being under funded for maintenance over a long period.”

Mr Smith said the council supported Horsham Special Development School development on the college’s Dimboola Road campus but it would ‘continue to create significant challenges for the effective operation of our college’.

“We are extremely proud of the achievements of our staff and students who have excelled irrespective of the environment,” he said. “Just imagine the possibilities if we can provide 21st century facilities to match their endeavors. “Students are our region’s future and funding Horsham College’s redevelopment makes good business for them and the Wimmera’s continued prosperity. “Last year the college celebrated a century of secondary education in Horsham. Let’s begin the next century with a long-awaited commitment for new school facilities. “Don’t make us wait any longer – it is time to Just Build It.”

CHIPPING IN: Horsham College students, from left, Elly Blakeley, Holly King and Lottie White arm themselves with fund-raising ‘weapons’ as part of the school’s inaugural Purple Day. Students used Purple Day as a build-up to the Cancer Council Relay for Life, dressing in purple and taking on money-raising activities. Heads and eyebrows were shaved and even legs were waxed before the main relay event at the weekend. Schools played a huge role in Horsham’s Relay for Life, St Brigid’s College raising $7233.10, Horsham Primary School $6728.25 and Horsham College $4182.50. This year’s Horsham relay raised a record $149,230, taking the event’s contribution during the last 11 years to beyond $1-million. Picture: MICK SHANNON

Cancer remains high on humanity’s hit list




ith medical science toppling so many diseases in the last century we wait with anticipation for all the various forms of cancer to join the list.

If the greatest weapon in stopping this scourge of humanity is community willpower then the days of cancer must surely be numbered. The enormous outpouring of spirit and positive aura from events such as the Cancer Council Relay for Life, where people gather en masse for a common cause, creates an immeasurable but obviously powerful elixir.

Thursday, March 21, 2013

A combination of brilliant minds, the will of the masses and the millions of research dollars they are pouring into the fight against ‘the big C’ are paying dividends. We are hearing of and seeing the trickle of news about significant breakthroughs increasing all the time and a gradual but growing reduction in cancer-related death sentences. We remain well short of achieving a dream of turning that trickle into a flood of cures. The reality is, considering the complex nature of cancer, success has never been likely to come easily. It is only through relentless effort that we will achieve the ultimate victory. There remain few of us untouched by cancer. Many of us have seen this disease in its many forms take the lives or cripple

or disfigure family members, friends and associates. People through the ages have suggested that cancers, like so many other diseases, might be nature’s ways of keeping humanity in check. But history shows we have conquered so many of these human frailties and it is therefore reasonable to assume that the various forms of cancer are simply on the hit list. If anything good has ever come from cancer it would have to be how it continually unveils the incredible fight and resilience of the human spirit. To everyone involved in the fight against cancer, from the 1084 dedicated walkers who took part in the Relay for Life in Horsham last weekend to the scientists working in laboratories – keep punching!

Delahunty angry over tree pruning

The Nationals State Council opened nominations last Monday and pre-selection for the seat held by John Forrest since 1993 will be on April 14. Mr Forrest will retire from Federal Parliament at the Federal Election later this year. Nationals state director Stuart Copeland encouraged nominations and said the pre-selection winner would have an opportunity to represent the region in Federal Parliament with the potential to work as part of a future Federal Liberal Nationals Coalition Government. “We have many hard working and dedicated National Party members in the Mallee and across western Victoria, who, if given the chance, would make terrific federal members of parliament,” Mr Copeland said. Mr Copeland paid tribute to Mr Forrest who represented the Mallee electorate for the past 20 years. He said people seeking more information on how to nominate for pre-selection for the Nationals is available online at,, or by calling 9564 6588.

Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty has weighed into a debate regarding Powercor’s ‘harsh’ pruning of street trees in townships across his electorate.

Mr Delahunty said he supported people who were alarmed by the project which Powercor was undertaking in the name of public safety. “I am very concerned about the devastating impact pruning is having on the streetscapes and the appeal of our rural townships,” Mr Delahunty said. “I have been attempting to work through electricity regulator Energy Safe Victoria, Powercor officials and ministerial channels to improve the situation. But while these discussions are ongoing, trees continue to be scalped. It is simply not good enough.”

Mr Delahunty said the government had a code of practice for tree pruning based on safety, amenity and managing risk. The code included a requirement to minimise the impact on trees of cultural or environmental significance.

“The pruning protocol being undertaken by Powercor fails the test of balancing community values with risk,” Mr Delahunty said. “Powercor’s consultation is not good enough with the community and the councils and its communication strategy is equally poor in informing the community of decisions made. “I would encourage Powercor to consider its community responsibilities and work with councils to achieve a more respectful outcome for the streetscapes of our rural towns.”

THUMPER BOOSTS CANOLA YIELD IN WESTERN VIC AFTER becoming frustrated with the inconsistent quality and increasing costs of gypsum, Laurie and Tristan Ritchie, Lake Bolac in Western Victoria, went searching for a better and more reliable source of sulphur for their canola crops. Armed with some advice from Westlake Fertiliser’s Scott Cameron, they tried Thumper, a compound fertiliser from Superfert Dongbu. Made by state of the art manufacturing technology, each Thumper fertiliser granule contains nitrogen, phosphorus and sulphur and, with a portion of each element in every granule, it provides an even distribution of nutrients throughout the paddock along with uptake. Superfert southern regional manager Phil Venus says Thumper was developed in response to grower feedback that they needed a higher performance fertiliser. Thumper’s sulphur content is in both the

sulphate and elemental forms, ensuring the crop receives an immediate boost as well as sustained release during the growing season. “To have N, P and S next to the seed and evenly distributed across the paddock maximises the ability of the plant to achieve its yield potential,” Phil said. The Ritchies sowed Thumper with the seed at a rate of 120 kilograms a hectare, followed by two applications of urea during the growing season totalling 140kg/ha. Their canola varieties - Stingray, Gem (TT) and Zircon conventional - averaged 3.45 tonnes/ha at 46 per cent oil. This was a premium of about 600kg/ha above the district average and 1t/ha above the previous season’s National Variety Trial long-term average for mid-triazine canola at Streatham, Vic. “We have been blown away with the results,” Laurie said. “I can’t see us going back to gypsum at all.

SUPER PUSH: Lake Bolac farmer Tristan Ritchie (pictured with Westlake Fertilisers’ Scott Cameron) switched to Superfert’s Thumper fertiliser last year which helped push yields 600 kilograms a hectare above the district average.

“We will use Thumper on all our crops this year so that we can build our sulphur reserves ready for the next canola crop. MAP just cannot deliver like Thumper has.” Phil says the Ritchies are one of many farm businesses that have observed Thumper’s “I have had reports from across the Mallee, Wimmera and Western District of Victoria from farmers who are just astounded at what the addition of sulphur into a granule of fertiliser can achieve,” he said. Superfert Dongbu has a range of compounded fertilisers ready for this growing season, including Thumper Zn and Victory which is suitable for Wimmera Mallee region.

Sharing our cultures


t is Cultural Diversity Week in Victoria and the state is awash with multicultural celebrations.

It is the week where organisations such as Oasis Wimmera, involved with migrant work, realise their project outcomes after toiling for months; a week where community groups easily coexist without resentment or guilt, a week where tolerance, understanding and cultural awareness is at a high; a week where even jaded cynics like me get emotional seeing the positive and generous community response towards a multicultural festival. It is also the week where jargon flows in abundance – ‘Cultural and Linguistically Diverse’ groups, ‘unity in diversity’, ‘cultural pluralism’, ‘mosaic’, ‘multiculturalism’, ‘ethnic fusion’ and so on. It is also the week where perhaps political agendas that use immigration issues as red herrings are momentarily set aside. In short, this week is the Mecca of multicultural charm – an epitome of co-existence and harmony; though some might argue it is more contrived than natural. However, as with any celebration, as soon as festivities are over, the spirit

or essence of the celebration goes into hiatus until the next year. Likewise, when Cultural Diversity week is over, the appreciation of multiculturalism is also packed up and the debate over the melting pot or salad bowl continues. Everyday life, fraught with hectic schedules and personal agendas, pushes cultural awareness and tolerance to the backseat. It is only a handful of government agencies and organisations and a few religious and not-for-profit organisations that focus on immigration and settlement that continue to promote cultural diversity. Multiculturalism in general is seen as a challenge and perhaps even a barrier in everyday life, sometimes irrespective of which camp one belongs.

Used to borrowing only two books on a card in huge and silent mausoleums under strict and authoritarian librarians in India, I was ecstatic to learn that I could borrow books and other materials without limits in Australian libraries. I was equally thrilled when I learnt I could get books and movies in Indian languages from the libraries for my mother, another voracious reader, while she was visiting. Later I discovered that libraries here were more than just a resource centre. Especially after moving to Horsham, I understood first-hand that libraries were community centres and a first stop for migrants. It gladdens my heart when I see new arrivals visiting the library with their families. Whether it is enhancing their knowledge of English or promoting reading habits of their children or making use of the internet facility or just spending time with their families, the library is versatile in meeting their needs. In most communities, libraries turn into a secure haven where people mingle without much inhibition or intimidation.

Terracotta warriors at Toys Garden Restaurant in Horsham have timed their ‘appearance’ to perfection, ‘coming to life’ in brilliant colour for Cultural Diversity Week. The two rare 240-kilogram terracotta warriors, which restaurant owner Leon Toy bought from a Great Wall of China Exhibition in Melbourne about 10 years ago, have stood in the restaurant quietly overlooking patrons. Mr Toy has long been keen to give the warriors a ‘new lease of life’ and took on the project with help from Horsham artist Amabile DalfarraSmith. The pair researched the dress code and uniforms of warriors designed to guard the emperor Xin from 2000 years ago and applied what they found out in meticulous detail. “What we found in painting the warriors was that the detail in the terracotta statues was really quite intricate. All the little things suddenly came to life. It was quite amazing,” Mr Toy said. Mr Toy and Amabile Dalfarra-Smith are pictured with the finished warriors. Picture: MICK SHANNON

Walking all day for Wattle

Thursday, March 21, 2013


ural Northwest Health supporters will take a long walk on Saturday to help raise money for the organisation’s Warracknabeal campus.

“We can keep on achieving great results if we have the support of the community to keep investing in our programs and infrastructure.” The rehabilitative therapist said Rural Northwest Health wanted to build a pergola for the unit and a small men’s shed for Wattle’s backyard. “Those two items are our number one goal for now. If we can keep on making improvements to Wattle, we can continue to raise the bar and be the benchmark to which Australia’s other aged-care facilities aspire.”

The 70-kilometre Walk for Wattle will start from the Hopetoun campus at 7am on Saturday with walkers planning to be in Warracknabeal by 7pm. Organisers expect about 30 participants. ON THE WALK: Alison Fischer, left, Katie Ramsdale from Rural Northwest Health’s Wattle unit in Warracknabeal prepare for Walk for Wattle.  Picture: CONTRIBUTED

Ms Ramsdale said she was also hoping to attract business sponsorship for the event.

Staff, residents and supporters to walk from Hopetoun to Warracknabeal to raise money for Rural Northwest award-winning Health’s Wattle unit.

Walk for Wattle organiser Katie Ramsdale said the memory-support unit, caring for people with dementia, relied on outside funding for its programs.

Portia de Rossi, also a philanthropist supporting several charities now living in America, was born in Horsham on January 31, 1973 at Wimmera Base Hospital. The ceremony coincides with her visit to Australia

with partner and American television personality Ellen DeGeneres. De Rossi and DeGeneres have spread a message and been strong advocates about animal protection and welfare and Horsham Lions Club will provide a barbecue with proceeds going to animal-rescue organisation Horsham Paws. Footage of the event will be sent to America’s Ellen DeGeneres Show. Horsham’s Amanda Wilson, working on the project since July last year, said the event was about recognising someone born in the Wimmera who had provided an inspira-

“It’s about an opportunity to recognise someone who has shown true country spirit and genuinely cares about people and animals,” she said. “The driving force for me was to put Horsham on the map. What better opportunity than when Portia De Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres are visiting Melbourne. Horsham teenagers Lucy Schmidt, Claudia McRae and Olivia Morris have also had a strong response to a promotion to encourage DeGeneres to visit Horsham through social media.

ararat ruralcity focus Council focus Community Vision 2030 Residents are being asked to put their thinking caps on and have their say about the future as Community Vision 2030 postcards are distributed and listening post meetings held. Mayor Cr Ian Wilson urged everyone to get involved in the development of the Community Vision 2030 document and the 2013-2017 Council Plan, which will outline strategic priorities for the future of their municipality and help guide Council decision making. “Council wants to hear what residents have to say so we can develop the best documents possible,” Cr Wilson said. “The Council is looking forward to hearing what residents and ratepayers think, and we’re really excited to see how they want their municipality to look in 2030. I encourage everyone to get involved to help influence our future direction.” Every resident in the municipality is being given the chance to be part of the Community Vision 2030 through the listening posts and the postcards, which will be mailed to every household. People have the chance to win an iPad by filling in the postcards, which cover the Council’s four pillars – community, lifestyle, economy and environment. Cr Wilson said listening posts are currently being held in eight locations around the municipality so the Council can gather as many views as possible. “Residents can drop into their nearest listening post and chat to Councillors about their vision for the municipality,” he said. “The information gathered from the postcards and the listening posts will be collated and fed into the development of the Community Vision 2030 and the 2013-2017 Council Plan. The more people we hear from the better – this is your opportunity to contribute to creating a positive, bright future for our municipality.” Other community engagement activities being held as part of the development of Community Vision 2030 will include a poster competition for primary school children, meetings with Student Representative Councils and a Futures Forum. To be eligible to win an iPad your completed postcards need to be returned by Wednesday March 27, 2013. If your household does not receive your Community Vision 2030 postcard in the next week, or should you have any further questions regarding the process, please phone 5355 0200.

Ararat Outdoor Olympic Pool potential redevelopment The Ararat Outdoor Olympic Pool is located to the West of the Alexandra Gardens adjacent to the Alexandra Lake. Built in 1958, the pool and associated pool buildings are in poor condition and no longer comply with current regulations for this type of facility. As a result this facility has been closed since 2011. The Ararat Rural City Council is working with specialist consultants in pool development to establish accurate costings. Following extensive community consultation Council will determine whether or not to proceed with the redevelopment of the outdoor pool at its present location. Council is currently working with interested parties from the community in the development of these potential plans. The consultants have presented a commercial costing of around $2.9 million for the proposed upgrade. Some of the works required for the pool to be operational again include a new plant room and associated plumbing and electrical works, construction of a wet deck, replacement of pipe work and filtering systems, repairs to the pool shell as well as improvements to access and concrete areas around the pool. The cost also includes the upgrade of the change rooms, toilets and kiosk and to construct a water play area as part of the redevelopment.The water play area is being designed to ensure safety for small children. The existing building that accommodates the change rooms and toilets no longer comply to current regulations, and don’t provide accessible access therefore a new amenity building to house these services is being developed. While a group of interested community members are working on fund raising (and collecting a list of works that might be able to be carried out with voluntary labour) it is clear that the vast majority of the funds needed for this redevelopment will have to come from rates. It must be noted that grant funds are not likely to become available for these type of facilities through State or Federal Governments.

Alexandra Oval proposed redevelopment Once constructed, the Alexandra Oval precinct will become the regions premier community hub, particularly with the recent grant funds allocated by the Victorian Government, and with hopes for further funds from our current RDA application to the Federal Government. These funds will be used to construct a $3.3million state of the art community facility on the north-east side of the pre-existing OIver Stand. Ararat Rural City Council will consider making further contributions to the project in the 2013/14 budget, conditional upon receiving the Federal Government RDA funding. Ararat Community Enterprise, and other community groups have also committed to raise further funds in order to complete the facility. The planned facility will comprise of a multipurpose room accommodating over 200 seated patrons, a commercial kitchen, bar and canteen facilities, meeting rooms, female change rooms, home and away club rooms (with trainers facilities) and male and female umpire change rooms. The Alexandra Oval Committee of Management is very keen to have other community groups use the building, and believe it will fill a void that exists at the moment. It is the Committee of Management’s task to raise additional funds in order to complete the facility. This will be done through a range of fundraising initiatives within the community. Ararat Rural City Council in conjunction with the Committee of Management are working with Moreton Dunn Architects to further develop the plans.

Disc seeders shine at no-till demo day Farmers from across central western Victoria braved searing temperatures for a Victorian No Till Farmers Association’s Disc Seeding Demo Day at Longerenong.

More than 130 farmers from across western Victoria and Longerenong College students keen for knowledge about advances in disc-seeding technology attended the event at the college. Manufacturers from Bourgault, Excel, NDF, John Deere, Serafin, KHart and Ryan Farm Machinery outlined how their disc seeders worked and farmers and the students saw first-hand how they worked with urea-placement demonstrations. Victorian No-Till Farmers Asso-

ciation president Wayne Adler said disc seeding was a method proving successful as part of no-till farming systems.

He said the turnout was testament to the thirst for information and knowledge across the state’s farming community on farming systems that focussed on improving soil health. The event started with guest speakers in Longerenong Hall, followed by a two-hour paddock demonstration. “The Wimmera certainly turned on some hot weather for us and we thought it might keep some people away. But they just kept arriving and arriving until the hall was full,” Mr Adler said. Mr Adler said speakers provided

information about technology that was still in its infancy in this part of Australia.

“During the past five years the changes and advancement in discseeding technology has exploded whereas up until that point its growth was quite slow,” he said. Guest speakers included Dean Johns from Bayer, disc-seeding expert and author Jack Desbiolles, Mr Adler and association vice-president Steve Lanyon from Boort, the first in his district to adopt the discseeding technology. People keen to find out more about the Victorian No-Till Farmers Association including its 11th annual conference in Ballarat on July 16 and 17 can visit website or phone 5382 0422.

from in and around the township. They will have official badges identifying themselves and collect money on Good Friday morning. Volunteers expect to again serve hundreds of meals of freshly cooked fish in beer batter when the luncheon starts at noon.

The band Things of Stone and Wood be also be a major attraction and other performers include Terang-born Rhys Crimmin, Irish song-writer and artist Roesy, Port Fairy Folk Festival regulars Andy Alberts and Walkabouts, Tank Dilemma, Howlin’ Wind and The Space Keys, Blue Couch, Nitida Atkinson and the Tim Guy Trio.

The event is popular with families and visitors with a highlight being the arrival the ‘Easter Bunny’. Willaura’s own ‘Pick a Chick’ competition also delights district children, as does face painting, lucky dips and a free jumping castle.

The festival opens with an art exhibition by Koori artiest Eileen Harrison tomorrow night and continues on Saturday.

Celebrating our diverse cultures

Thursday, March 21, 2013


immera people have an opportunity to explore and celebrate cultural diversity through dance, music and food in Horsham on Saturday.

Migrant support agency Oasis Wimmera, in celebrating Cultural Diversity Week, has organised a free-of-charge Dance for Diversity showcase from 3pm at Wesley Performing Arts Centre. The regional event, promoting tolerance, understanding and acceptance of the many cultures in the Wimmera, follows the successful theme of a Horsham United Musical Mayhem project from last year’s Art Is... festival. Cultural Diversity Week started on Monday and is designed for help Victorian share aspects of their faiths, cultures and languages. As well as promoting cultural exchange between people, the event will also launch a new direction for Youth Performing Arts in the Wimmera. Cultural performances from the region’s Indian, Karen, Filipino and Indigenous communities will showcase traditional and contemporary dance and song with performances from

regional dance, callisthenics and music schools. The event will start with a shared banquet featuring food from various cultural communities. Oasis Wimmera’s founding committee member and organiser Sujatha Umakanthan said Dancing for Diversity was a wonderful way to promote the cultural relevance and significance of local and migrant performing art forms. “It enables us to strengthen our ties between local and migrant communities and foster

new relationships and more importantly new friendships,” she said.


Art Is… festival organisers have programmed a ‘BeAT’ percussion workshop for the afternoon before the banquet. Melbourne performers Peter Vadiveloo and Gerard Pigg from last year’s HUMM will lead the workshop. The Victorian Multicultural Commission, Regional Arts Victoria, Wimmera Development Association and Horsham Rural City Council are supporting Dance for Diversity.

Students join project

Thursday, March 21, 2013



t Brigid’s College students in Horsham will support Wimmera youth in need as part of a Monday Munchies program.

The college, Salvation Army and Wimmera Uniting Care will launch the project next month. St Brigid’s College Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning coordinator Lesley Lannen said Monday Munchies was a lunch for people under 26 at Horsham’s Salvation Army Hall each week.

She said students would help provide a lunch starting at noon each Monday. The cost would be covered by proceeds in an ‘honesty box’ where people could give what they could afford to pay for the meal.

“It all started last year after our involvement with the luncheon day which the Salvation Army runs each Tuesday,” she said.

the college’s community service and religious education programs.

“Through that I met Sue Hateley and Vicky Chettleburgh from Wimmera Uniting Care and we started talking about the need for more than just one day a week so the program really evolved from that.

“The VCAL students will manage it in terms of rosters and menus and will work closely with the Salvation Army and be supported by Youth Outreach at Wimmera Uniting Care,” she said.

“The Tuesday events are usually for older people so we looked at providing one aimed at young people.”

“The students are all really keen. We’ll have two students who are team leaders and I’d hope that we could run it throughout school holidays

Mrs Lannen said the program would become a part of

“I reckon this is something that will keep going over the next couple of years and other students will take on what we started this year. I’m just really excited to get started.”

as well. “It is still evolving. We know what we want to do and what we want to achieve, we just need to get word out now and let young people know this is there for them.”

The first Monday Munchies lunch will be on April 15 at the Salvation Army Hall on corner of Lynott Street and Kalkee Road.

Year 12 VCAL student Jake Williams said the most appealing part of the project was helping other young people.


Small businesses in the Ararat municipality can now obtain free support from Ararat Rural City Council.

He said the service was free to small businesses and had funding support through the State Government’s Local Skills Partnership program, the council and Ararat Regional Business Association.

Ararat Rural City Council has appointed John Watson as small-business development officer who is now available to meet small-business owners seeking advice, support and help.

Mr Watson, who has moved from Ballarat to take up the position, has many years of experience in small and large business, many of which included the use of new technology, social media and computers.

Ararat Mayor Cr Ian Wilson said the new position would be a great asset to the many small businesses that formed the backbone of the region’s

Money for Wimmera River foreshore upgrade The State Government will provide $177,000 to improve facilities on the Wimmera River foreshore in Horsham from McBryde Street to Weir Park. Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty said the government would provide the money in the wake of damage to facilities during 2011 floods.


“The Wimmera River is Horsham’s greatest natural asset, flowing through the centre of the city, and is a big draw card for the local community and tourists,” Mr Delahunty said.

One of the major projects earmarked for the money will be to improve turf, an irrigation system, fencing and barbecue

Horsham Rural City Council will manage the program with Wimmera River Improvement Committee.

Other projects include fencing and signs for two off-leash dog areas at Windsor Park and development of a universal access track complete with lighting.

Association to promote region

Wimmera Development Association will again use a Regional Living Expo in Melbourne to promote the Wimmera and southern Mallee to metropolitan audiences. It also wants help to ‘maximise the potential’ of the April 19 to 21 event in spreading information about the region. Association project officer Tammy McDonald said the event provided a unique opportunity to promote job vacancies and businesses for sale to people keen to relocate from large metropolitan centres to regional communities.

“The expo will attract people who are considering moving to or investing in regional Victoria and there will be significant advertising of the event by the Victorian Government,” she said. “More than 8000 people attended the 2012 Regional Victoria Living Expo. The key focus was on jobs, businesses for sale and residential real estate.” Wimmera Development Association is working in partnership with Horsham Rural City Council, Buloke, Hindmarsh, Northern Grampians, West Wimmera and Yarriam-

biack Shire councils. It is compiling a job-vacancy board and will promote businesses for sale in the region. Ms McDonald said people attending the expo would be able to register their interest in jobs and businesses and the association would work with regional agencies and businesses to match the people with the job or business for sale. “We will take business and job information to the expo, and hopefully assist businesses fill vacancies as well as generate interest in regional businesses that are on the market,” she said.

Young people from ‘culturally and linguistically diverse’ and Indigenous Wimmera communities now have an opportunity to pursue interests in writing as part of a new art project and ‘club’.

The WOW Project involves weekly afterschool ‘club’ Horsham workshops of between 10 and 15 children aged between 10 and 18 at Wimmera Uniting Care Urquhart Street offices. It allows the children to creatively explore connections based on where they have come from, where they are now and where they are going.

ing and drawing clubs in the Wimmera and Melbourne. Mr Drum is helping the group to create a new piece of public art for Horsham called ‘Writing on the Walls of Horsham’. The work will lead to 15 public artworks at 15 different sites along Horsham’s Firebrace Street. Final drafts from each person involved will be part of a series of permanent stainless steel exhibits which will adorn walls in Horsham’s Central Business District. The work will reflect the voices of youth in a ‘collective expression of their sense of connection to place’. Organisers will unveil the art project during Horsham’s 2013 Art Is… On Our Land festival between June 1 and June 9.

Indigenous architect designing new café


ictoria’s only registered Indigenous architect Jefa Greenaway is designing a new café for Horsham.

“The project seeks to project culture through built form while remaining honest in its role as purveyor of fine coffee and fresh food,’’ Mr Greenaway said. “The cafe also aims to be both family friendly and a welcoming stop for travellers, ensuring provisions for contemporary and connected individuals, be it through WiFi connections, phone-charging hub, flat-screen TVs, a kids’ corner, change table and outdoor areas for smokers and sun-seekers.’’

The café, next to land council offices at the south end of Firebrace Street, has a directive to offer high-quality service, coffee and healthy food. Plans designed to incorporating Indigenous culture with modern ideas show how the café will feature timber-look stone flooring and stainless bench tops complemented by warm colours and furnishings.

Artists Barengi Gadjin Land Council chief executive Jim Golden-Brown said the café would also feature the work of Victorian Indigenous artists, selling art, craft, music and books.

Take-away They also include communal tables, an informal lounge area and tall-stool area to provide customers with choice, and a children’s play room and alfresco areas.

Mr Greenaway is a descendant of the WailwanKamilaroi people, a founder and director of Indigenous

It will also have a servery window for busy people to buy take-away coffee.

FIRE-SAFE WOOL: Elders Horsham Wool sales manager Andrew Combe presents nine merino wool blankets to Wimmera Uniting Care occupational health and safety officer Tim Pipkorn.  Picture: BELINDA ELLIOTT

Blanket gift for fire kits Elders Horsham has donated nine woollen blankets to Wimmera Uniting Care to help protect staff against bushfires. The blankets will be part of the agency’s Bushfire Car Kits which are available to employees when there is an unavoidable need to travel on days of increased fire risk. Elders Wool sales manager Andrew Combe presented the blankets, each valued at $150, to occupational health and safety officer Tim Pipkorn. Mr Combe said wool had been an integral part of Elders business for the past 175 years. “I am proud to be able to provide these pure merino wool blankets to Wimmera Uniting Care,” he said.

“One of wool’s great properties is that it does not burn.” Mr Combe said the blankets originated from a consignment of greasy wool bought at auction from Elders clients. “The blend was dumped, packed and shipped overseas for initial processing at a woolcombing factory in China,” he said. “The open top in loose form was then shipped back to Tasmania where Waverly Woollen Mills created these 100 percent high-quality wool rugs.”

The right age to start thinking about super For those who can ‘salary sacrifice’, it is a very attractive proposition to obtain a tax benefit when making the contribution and then receive the end benefit free of tax. Other concessions include:


or people in their 50s and 60s, superannuation provides generous tax concessions with sometimes very little cost in terms of access to their funds. The decision for younger people to invest into super is quite different, because they might not get access to this money for many years – sometimes even several decades. However, as with anything, weighing up the costs and benefits is crucial and especially so in light of the ‘simpler super system’. Younger people today can look forward with the knowledge that their superannuation will be available to them in retirement, free of tax. While concessions provide a great incentive, a further consideration is that contributions in your later working years will be limited.

• Contribution splitting. Allows a couple to share the contributions made by one partner. This can be beneficial where one partner has a much higher superannuation balance than the other. • Transition to Retirement. These rules allow for limited access to superannuation from age 55, even for those still working. The reduction of the superannuation concessional contributions cap to a flat

While these rules make superannuation much more attractive to younger people, it is still important to consider alternative investments. During your lifetime you are likely to encounter other major expenses, such as your home mortgage or children’s education, which cannot be met from superannuation. Investments, which provide a regular income and may be sold without restriction, such as property and shares, provide for this need. These can be owned directly or through a wide range of managed investments. As always, it is important to receive professional financial advice before committing yourself to any investment strategy. • Robert Goudie is an authorised representative of Meritum Financial Group Pty Ltd AFSL 245569.

Alves to speak at sports night F

ormer St Kilda coach, VFL premiership player and Brownlow Medal runner-up Stan Alves OAM will speak at a Horsham RSL Diggers sports night and jumper presentation next month. Mr Alves, who played 226 games for Melbourne and 40 for North Melbourne and took the Saints took their first grand final in 26 years, will be a guest at Horsham RSL club on April 17. Horsham RSL Diggers and Horsham RSL subbranch are working together

in presenting the event.

The theme of the evening will be mental toughness and sacrifice in sport. RSL Diggers president Peter Miller said Mr Alves, who like the football club had an historic connection to the game and returned servicemen, had an ‘inspirational story to tell’. “He will give great insight into the game and aspects involving mental toughness,” he said. People keen to attend must book through Horsham RSL. Tickets are $40 and include a two-course meal.

ON THE BOARD: Former Horsham Hornets players Cam Bruce and Corey Collier have made an immediate impact at their new Big V state league club, Sunbury Jets. Stepping up to division one, Collier scored 14 points in the Jets’ 66-70 opening-round loss to Geelong Supercats while Bruce scored seven points with four assists and four steals. The duo backed up the following day with Collier adding 19 points and eight rebounds, while Bruce contributed four points, seven assists and two steals in the Jets’ 70-79 loss to Chelsea Gulls. They are pictured with Sunbury coach Shannon Peterson. Collier was the Big V league MVP playing for the Hornets in division two last season, while Bruce was team captain and one of the competition’s leading players. Horsham players were forced to find new basketball teams after Hornets leaders decided to wtihdraw from Big V competition, citing financial reasons as a major cause.

Homers favourite but Blue Panthers in hunt I

a habit of lifting for big occasions. For a start, the Pigeons will have crack opening pair Midgley and Andrew Newall and then work their way through Adam Carter and the Morgans. Of course, waiting in the lower middle order is figures wrecker Brent Hudson who clipped 86 last week.


f making runs means everything in a cricket match, Rupanyup-Minyip will start Horsham Cricket Association’s A Grade grand final against Homers this weekend as a slight underdog. The Blue Panthers, despite a thrashing semi-final victory against Noradjuha-Toolondo last week, perhaps fall short of matching the Pigeons in batting depth and will need to produce heroics similar to last year to win back-to-back titles. Homers have poured on the runs in their last two digs, on two occasions against Laharum and including a big semifinal run-chase for victory last week. There is no question that all-rounder Chris Hopper, who made a rapid-fire 150 last Sunday, is in red-hot form and with disciplined backbone opener Sandy Hodge leads a formidable batting top order. Although he did last weekend, skipper Lachie Jones rarely fails at number three, Hodge’s opening partner Jason Templeton loves the cut and thrust of finals, Simon Hopper is a luxury at number five and Adam Atwood sits in the wings when quick runs are required. The grand final will also unfold at a carpet-like Horsham City Oval where if the wicket behaves like it did last week will produce a lot of runs. The big difference for Homers this weekend will be that they come up against a considerably different bowling attack. Athletic all-rounder Clinton Midgley tends to hit the deck hard and his four wickets last


CRACKING FORM: Homers all-rounder Chris Hopper hit 24 fours and four sixes during a rapid-fire 150 to end Laharum’s season on Sunday. Hopper’s efforts overshadowed the work of opposition captain Damien Bunworth, below, who hit 16 fours and four sixes on his way to 130 on Saturday. Pictures: WILLAMY IMAGES

week emphasised his critical role in the team with the ball. Finals experience oozes from Rupanyup-Minyip’s veterans and only the foolish would discount the potential impact Paul or Craig Morgan or ever-wily Leigh Funcke might have on the contest. Throw in bowling surprise packet Ryan Metelmann and the Blue Panthers’ bowling list appears more than handy.

Testament to the Rupanyup-Minyip batting list is that the likes of Metelmann and many-time innings saviour Nick McIntyre are making up the tail. All eyes of course will be on how Paul Morgan performs, particularly with the bat and considering how sensational his match-winning century was in last season’s final. The match will unfold over Saturday and Sunday. In other grades, NatimukGoroke will play RupanyupMinyip in a B Grade final at Cornell Park and BlackheathDimboola will continue its three-game clash with Horsham Saints Red at Horsham College with BlackheathDimboola 1-0 in the series.


Brownless at medal Radio and television personality and former Geelong footballer Billy Brownless will be guest speaker at Horsham Cricket Association’s Cec Hopper Medal night on Sunday. The presentations will be at Horsham Sports and Community Club from 7pm. Officials will present premiership trophies in all senior cricket grades during the night.

Footy Countdown Edenhope-Apsley

South-west Saints seek success I


t came with a rush and suddenly Edenhope-Apsley was there – playing off for a Horsham District Football League premiership. Some might consider EdenhopeApsley’s loss to Kalkee in last year’s grand final a prime example of ‘the one that got away’. Or was it that the Saints’ arrival as a competition was slightly premature? The Saints, who captured the imagination of the football-loving public in the Wimmera’s southwest last year, again loom as topthree contenders. This time Mal Coutts and James Dixon are in charge of a spirited senior group that will attempt to carry on the premiership campaign.

been fantastic but realistically we might have been a little ahead of ourselves,” he said. Mr Close added that while premierships remained the ultimate measure of club success, they remained far from the driving force behind the Saints.

Edenhope-Apsley president Laurie Close agreed that for the group to reach the grand final last year after missing the finals altogether the previous year had ‘happened very quickly’.

“The simple aim is to have a sustainable football and netball club – that’s what we’re trying to put in place. It’s important to establish foundations for a strong, viable club that can continually provide sport in our community,” he said.

“Obviously we were disappointed but in saying that I don’t know if we were quite ready. For the club it was a new experience. We hadn’t played finals for many years. To win would have

Mr Close said the Saints had a membership of more than 370 as well as strong community support which with administration was critical in generating success and longevity.

“If you don’t have things in place properly it’s a bit like trying to grow crops on infertile soil. If the base isn’t right you will struggle to get a good crop and will end up chasing rainbows,” he said.

“It’s invariably like simply shifting a mob of sheep from one paddock to another and then saying the new paddock is going well when in fact the mob hasn’t grown at all.

“We’ve tried to make the club more than just a sporting organisation. It’s about establishing a base where people can come and feel comfortable.”

“Obviously we have players coming into the club but we haven’t been banging on doors in Horsham.

Philosophy Mr Close said part of the consolidation process was reflected in a developing recruiting philosophy that involved pursuing players who had traditional connections with the club. “We have made a concerted effort to make sure the majority of players we pursue are home grown,” he said. “We make every effort to encourage people to come back and play with us and yes there have been financial incentives. But in most cases this applies to players who have somehow made previous contributions to the club. “The danger of going out and approaching every footballer across the Wimmera becomes a case of simply pinching players and not actually growing football. It’s one of my personal frustrations.

“We’ll be competitive and, like running any footy club or business, will be disappointed if we’re not better than last year.” Joint coach Mal Coutts said the expectation was for the Saints to again make the finals and preseason of late had gone from consolidating and fine-tuning a game plan. “What we identified from last year is that we didn’t have enough experienced guys who had played finals. Instead of trying to recruit willy nilly we’ve tried to pick four or five guys to strengthen our list and I believe we’ve done that,” he said. Midfielder Billy Christie, a friend of Dave McLeish, forward Will Smith, returning from Alice Springs, Carl Obst and super-experienced former Ballarat League premiership player Hayden Cartledge will play with the Saints this year.

Footy Countdown Horsham Saints


Long march to Wimmera history F


or some regional footy fans it seems like only yesterday that Horsham Saints made the boldest of moves to step up a gear and shift into Wimmera Football League. Yet this year marks the 20th anniversary of the daring decision which involved the then St Michaels putting everything from long-time supporters and sponsors to even the club’s future on the line. The Saints’ move, following a trail blazed by Imperials-Wonwondah years earlier, represented a developing club maturity and desire to be something more than the ‘local parish team’. The rest is history with the Saints providing or at being the heart of some of the greatest moments in the contemporary history of the competition. But the one critical trophy that has continually eluded the camp from the shadows of Meadowbank at Coughlin Park in its two decades at major-league level is a senior premiership. The absence of a flag protrudes from the Saints’ modern history like a painful thorn in a lion’s foot, preventing the beast from producing that roar of come-of-age confidence

and satisfaction that grand-final wins produce. They remain the only club in the competition without a premiership. Saints coach Brendan Broadbent made note of the circumstance this week as he provided The Weekly Advertiser with insight into his club’s preparations for the 2013 season. “It’s quite a contentious issue and I’ve spoken about in the pre-season,” he said. “We haven’t been able to push through that ceiling. We’ve played in several grand finals in Wimmera League and haven’t won any of them. On the 20th anniversary of being in the league we have to look at our previous performances and maybe think outside the box to help

us push through. “It’s been an issue, we’ve never gone into a final as a red-hot favourite and that comes down to building a team and getting all the right elements of a team together.” Broadbent suggested that the finals formula in creating a premiership team usually involved getting a mix of experienced players, young veterans in their early 20s and emerging youngsters together. “We have that mix this year and the hope is that it can translate on the ground and into performances,” he said.

Excitement Broadbent said the Saints introduced a free-flowing style into their game to accommodate a crop of young players last year and this year would again be about adapting plans to suit personnel. “The build-up basically started at the end of the last year shortly after our guys dipped out of the finals. There’s a fair bit of excitement around considering all kids who have been exposed to senior footy. What is really exciting is that a lot of the senior guys have been buoyed by that and have made a commitment to stick together.” Horsham Saints will analyse playing styles in a three-way roundrobin practice-match series in War-

rnambool this Saturday and again in a traditional match with new Hampden League club Portland on April 6.

James Richards

“We’ve certainly added some bigger bodies to the list and some of the young kids we played last year have grown up and have elevated fitness levels from training with the North Ballarat Rebels,” Broadbent said. Experienced Gavin and Heath Kelm and Pat Knott are returning to the club this year, Addison Milner is shifting from Edenhope-Apsley, Dennis Adams from NoradjuhaQuantong is on the list and Lachie De Morton from Golden Rivers League has joined the Saints. A ‘bigger and stronger’ Steve Cameron is also back after a knee injury last year and Toohey Medallist Phil Butsch, overcoming serious illness, has been training. Broadbent said the club was looking forward to the continued progression from the likes of Jacob Cooke-Harrison and Nathan Byrne and had high hopes for young players such as Jacob O’Beirne, James Richards, Keegan Mellington, Darcy Tucker, Jake McIntyre and Jesse Hatcher who has joined the club from Minyip-Murtoa.

Downie on up

IT’S ON: Yacht club commodores Peter Knights from Stawell, left, and Mark Johns, Horsham, rekindle a friendly club rivalry dating back to the 1960s before racing at Green Lake. Stawell sailors, who won the first clash between the clubs at Lake Fyans earlier this year, continued their winning form last weekend. The contest included 13 boats in two divisions and Stawell won both with Jan Ibs von Seht winning a mono section and Ross Bennett a catamaran division.

Up-and-coming apprentice jockey Carryn Downie is quickly making a name for herself in the Victorian riding ranks. This continued last Sunday at the Ararat meeting when she was aboard Tequila Queen for her master, Kyneton trainer Danny Curran. The duo was in a restricted sprinting event over 1100 metres carrying a prize purse of $15,000. With the young hoop showing recent good form in the saddle, Wimmera punters expected a bold showing. This was reflected as Tequila Queen was the most popular elect on course just before start time. As soon as the starter released the nine-horse field Downie made the quick decision to restrain her mount and settle at the rear. In a good display of patient riding Downie started to angle the daughter of Invincible Spirit to the extreme outside just before straightening for the run home. Tequila Queen found her way to the outside running rail which appeared to be the better ground. The five-year-old mare accelerated strongly in the favourable conditions in the home straight to score a comprehensive two-and-a-half length victory. The win was Tequila Queen’s fourth for career earnings of $61,000.

Horsham will resume club racing at Green Lake this weekend. The next StawellHorsham contest is likely to be in October. Picture: MICK SHANNON

Search for club leaders

Yendall dominates again Horsham jockey Dean Yendall’s red-hot season continued last Sunday at the Ararat meeting, booting home a winning treble. Dean kicked things off early combining with former Warrnambool, now Caulfield based, trainer Ciaron Maher to ride his filly Nullabar Belle to a three-length victory in the opening event. Yendall soon added to his tally when he combined with leading Victorian country trainer Darren Weir to boot home ‘good thing’ Sutanoc in the feature event, accounting for his two rivals easily to win by four lengths. The final leg of Yendall’s ‘three-peat’ came in the last event again combining with Weir’s ultra impressive galloper Reddamour who absolutely bolted in with an awesome display, recording a winning margin of almost six lengths. The Horsham hoop’s latest treble takes him to the top of the tree in the Australian Jockey’s Premiership with 107 winners for the season, leapfrogging Melbourne’s Brad Rawiller on 103 wins. Yendall is well on track to reclaim the title he won almost two years ago.

Horses to follow Three-time Horsham Cup winning hero Texan Warney is on track for another good campaign after an eye-catching third in a return to racing at Oakbank in the Adelaide Hills last Saturday. Moon Light Cristi made a sound debut at Ararat with a solid second placing and looks to have a future for Stawell trainers Terry and Karina O’Sullivan. • Josh Mackay is treasurer and executive of Horsham and District Racing Club.


immera Regional Sports Assembly is working with Volunteering Western Victoria and Sport and Recreation Victoria on an ambitious project – to train the next generation of club leaders.

The Club Leadership Project aims to prepare the next generation of leaders in the region’s clubs and associations through a intensive training program. Topics in the program include how to be an effective committee member, event

and risk management and future club development. WRSA executive officer David Berry said the modules were being delivered by Volunteering Western Victoria staff with expertise in the field. “As well as theory, there will be a practical component to the training, with participants also picking up skills in sports first aid, taping, Responsible Service of Alcohol and level-one coaching,” he said. “Apart from the skills they receive by way of training and course work, the

participants will also be engaged by their club or association to perform some work around their club.” Mr Berry said clubs interested in participating in the project in 2013 should express their interest to WRSA by contacting project co-ordinator Matthew Berry on 5382 4599.

“Only 12 positions are available in the program, so interested clubs should act swiftly to ensure their youngsters don’t miss out,” he said.

Back-to-back for St Mary’s Warracknabeal club St Mary’s is celebrating consecutive Wimmera-Mallee Cricket A Grade premierships after holding on to defeat St Arnaud at the weekend. The reigning premiers took a 90-run lead into the final day on Saturday and thanks to an unbeaten 74 from allrounder Peter Lehmann were able to build the gap to 253 before St Arnaud conceded the match. Tim Bell earned back-to-back grand-final ‘man of the match’ honours, scoring 39 runs and taking five wickets in the first innings victory.

Great Wall to launch passengers T

he distributor of Australia’s most popular Chinese car brand aims to almost double sales volume by the end of 2014 as it embarks on an ambitious expansion into passenger cars.

China, and Ateco admits one of the reasons for the switch was Volvo’s trademark of the C30 name here.

ONE OF FOUR: Great Wall importer Ateco says the C50 sedan – to be called VX50 here – will be on-sale in 2014 with a small turbo petrol engine.

Rather than offer a VX30 sedan, Ateco will instead offer the Cruze-sized VX50, which as we have reported is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine producing a respectable 98kW and 188Nm engine matched with a five-speed manual gearbox or optional continuously variable automatic transmission.

According to independent importer Ateco Automotive, Great Wall will add four models in three segments – light, small and crossover SUV – and attain a running rate of 20,000 annual sales by the end of 2014.

The car, known as the C50 in China, is available with electronic stability control – now mandatory in Australia – plus side and curtain airbags, tyre pressure monitoring, anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution, and doors that automatically unlock after a crash.

For point of reference, the projected sales figure is more than non-comparable brands Jeep, BMW or Audi sold here last year, and less than 5000 units shy of Suzuki.

Facelift First off the blocks will be a facelifted version of the Toyota Yaris-sized – and similarly styed – VX10, which will launch in the third quarter of this year priced around $13,000 – almost two years behind schedule. Ateco spokesman Daniel Cotterill said the VX10 would feature six airbags and stability control from launch, but stopped short of saying it would be Australia’s first five-star ANCAP Chinese car. Joining the VX10 by year’s end will be a monocoque crossover SUV called H6, which will start a staggered roll-out from the fourth quarter.

Marketing Initially, the H6 is likely to be available with a 2.0-litre petrol engine and manual gearbox, with diesel and automatic versions to follow in 2014. It will also be available in both four-wheel-drive and price-leading front-drive guise – the latter a first for Great Wall. The H6 will replace the petrol-powered, separate-chassis X240 SUV – currently priced from $23,990 driveaway – which will be discontinued at the end of 2013 due to the lack of ESC stability control.

According to Ateco’s general manager for Great Wall, Peter McGeown, the diesel X200 will soldier on for a little longer but will eventually be replaced by the oil-burning H6.

terials – leached from the vehicles’ standard parts or unauthorised accessories fitted later by the drivers of the privately owned vehicles that were up to two months old.

As reported last December, the H6 was caught up in a pollution scare when one vehicle in China was found to have more than three times the permitted level of the chemical formaldehyde in its cabin air.

Next year will also see the addition of the Corolla-sized, sub-$20,000 VX30 hatch and marginally larger VX50 sedan.

However, it was unclear if the pollutants – widely used in production of plastics and other synthetic ma-

The VX30 is currently sold in China as a sedan, but Ateco is believed to be waiting for the hatch to launch before launching sales in the third quarter of 2014. The car is sold as the C30 in

Mr McGeown said to expect a different marketing strategy from the company, moving beyond the sparse and simple television and print adverts used on its current range. “I think you’ll probably see a different approach with that. We did what we did for a reason, it was a value for money message and it worked. But there comes a time when you need to review that, especially having passenger cars as we will,” he said.

Top-rating RAV4 T

oyota’s fourth-generation RAV4 soft-roader has put the legacy of its past behind it, earning a top safety rating from the crash test watchdog.

ANCAP chief executive Nicholas Clarke said the RAV4 would be competing in a part of the market where two out of every three soft-roaders rolling out of showrooms now carried a top safety rating.

A STEP FORWARD: Toyota’s fourth-generation RAV4 has received a five-star crast rating in the latest ANCAP tests.

higher-specification models of the RAV4 added even more safety technology, including adaptive front lighting, blind spot monitoring, daytime running lights and a reversing camera.


“The RAV4 will be competing in a very competitive segment of the market and its five-star ANCAP safety rating brings it to a new level in terms safety,” Mr Clarke said. “This means more and more motorists will be driving in five-star safety.” ANCAP noted that some

ANCAP’s crash rating for the RAV4 was based on a Euro NCAP test of a left-hand-drive diesel-engined vehicle. According to the crash test, driver head, chest and leg protection was rated ‘acceptable’ for the frontal offset, which simulates one car turning in front of another, while both the side impact and pole test

Kia is entering its next engine downsizing phase with three and four-cylinder petrol units set for the next-generation B-segment light cars such as the Rio and Venga. Due to coincide with more stringent carbon dioxide emission requirements from 2015, Kia with parent Hyundai is developing 1.0-litre and 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol Kappa family units with and without turbo-chargers.

The Australasian New Car Assessment Program has awarded Toyota’s compact SUV a top five-star rating, largely helped by its count of seven airbags including a driver’s knee airbag, and technology including seatbelt reminders for all seats. The former generation of the RAV4 only received a fourstar rating.

returned a ‘good’ rating. The RAV4 joins the ranks of the Volvo XC60, Ford Kuga and Honda CR-V as top-rating mid-size soft-roaders.

They follow on from the Useries 1.1-litre three-cylinder and 1.4, 1.5, and 1.6-litre turbo-diesel units released over the last four years. According to Dr Joachim Hahn, head of drivetrain engineering for Kia in Europe, there will be upwards of 100 horsepower – about 75kW – on offer, in vehicles that must be lighter and more efficient than today’s range.

Holden reworks hot turbo Cruze H

olden has thrown its engineers behind a facelift for the Australian-built Cruze smallcar in a bid to woo more buyers, while a warmer turbo version adds some appeal for enthusiasts.

However, satellite navigation is missing from the range until midyear as a new system is being developed in tandem with the VF Commodore. Expect it to be standard on the SRi-V at the very least come June.

It may look no different, but the updated Adelaide-built Cruze sedan and hatch is substantially tweaked under the skin and – perhaps more crucially – will be substantially cheaper to buy when it hits showrooms in early April, with a razor-sharp starting price of $19,490 plus on-road costs. Along with the price cut, which pitches it at the heart of the likes of Toyota’s Corolla and the Mazda3, comes a longer list of standard features – the Cruze also becomes the first Australian-made car to get GM’s MyLink infotainment system with seven-inch touchscreen on all variants, including the renamed entrylevel Equipe. Holden has added some welcome sizzle and spice to what has been perceived as a prosaic offering with the introduction of a pair of hotter performance variants powered by the Opel Astra’s 132kW/230Nm 1.6-litre turbo engine, and priced from a tempting $22,490 in SRi guise. Sure to throw the cat among the warm-car pigeons, the SRi and its better-equipped SRi-V 1.6 turbo sibling – from $26,490 – easily under-

Existing features include Bluetooth phone connectivity with audio streaming, auto headlights, steering wheel audio, phone and cruise controls, and a trip computer. This makes the Cruze Equipe not only one of the cheapest base small-car offerings, but also one of the most well-equipped.

LION CLAWS: The 132kW/320Nm Cruze SRi-V warm hatch has the Mazda3 SP25 firmly in its sights, with a razor-sharp price of $26,490.

cut the less powerful Mazda3 SP25, which makes up around 20 percent of all ‘3’ sales and is priced from $31,490. In an effort to address criticism of the car’s middling dynamics, Holden tasked its boffins – led by lead engineer of the current Chevrolet Camaro – with ‘localising’ various transmissions, suspension, steering and throttle mapping across a development phase involving 70,000km of testing. Holden has also ditched the Kumho tyres used on the previous version and replaced them with pricier Bridgestones on all variants from base to top, helping grip levels and road refinement.

As one Holden insider put it to us: “This is really the Cruze we should have launched with four years ago, but all we can do is move forward with the stronger product we have”. The company won’t talk specific sales targets, but makes no bones about its need to boost sales to well above their current levels. Cruze volume is down 36.8 percent this year, and was down 13.7 percent for 2012 – although this was enough to finish third in small-car sales. With a host of Japanese and Korean rivals selling at 1990s prices thanks to strong exchange rates, Holden reacted by cutting $2000 from the starting price of the entry variant,

dubbed Equipe rather than CD as its predecessor was known. The resultant $19,490 figure undercuts rivals such as the Toyota Corolla and the recently launched Nissan Pulsar – both $19,990, Hyundai i30 – $20,990 and Mazda3 – $20,330. Extra standard equipment over the outgoing CD includes 17-inch alloys, front fog lights, rear parking sensors and the new seven-inch touchscreen with MyLink connectivity and access to internet radio and streaming services Pandora and Stitcher – already included in high-end versions of the Barina, but a first for an Australianmade car.

Drivetrains at this level are unchanged, with the cheapest versions retaining the 104kW/175Nm 1.8-litre EcoTec petrol unit matched to a fivespeed manual or the $2200 more expensive ‘second-generation’ sixspeed automatic transmission. Holden’s engineers claim to have removed a major issue from the old CD by shortening the auto’s gears and calibrating it to hold onto ratios for longer. Also retained are the 103kW/200Nm 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine and the punchy 120kW/360Nm turbo-diesel priced from $25,690, down $2100.

Next Mitsubishi Triton targets five-star safety Mitsubishi has revealed that the next-generation Triton utility and its Challenger SUV offshoot that will be unveiled sometime next year, will be the safest ever, with a predicted fivestar crash-test rating.

To help achieve that goal, advanced accident prevention technology like radar-controlled cruise control is likely to be made available, while improved driver-aid systems like stability management programs will be standard on the Triton. Speaking at the Geneva motor show, Mitsubishi Motors

Corporation board member and head of projects and strategy Ryugo Nakao, said that achieving top crash-test results is one of his engineers’ biggest priorities.

SAFE BET: Mitsubishi is aiming for a fivestar Euro NCAP crash rating for its next generation Triton ute, that is expected to be released in 2014.

“We will try to reach the target of ENCAP five-star,” Mr Nakao revealed, “with the help of prevention safety systems.” Confirming its development program, the next-generation Challenger SUV based on the Triton pick-up truck will also adopt the same technological advancements when it is released, most probably later in 2015, according to Mr Nakao.

Mr Nakao added that meeting tighter emissions regulations had been another driver in the Triton’s development.

Ford’s agile new Fiesta T

he Ford Fiesta ST is promising impressive agility after footage was released from the esteemed proving ground ‘Track 7’ in Lommel, Belgium.

Expertly piloted by seasoned Ford Vehicle Dynamics specialist David Put, the little Ford slides from one corner of the damp test circuit to the next at the fringes of adhesion. Various chassis modifica-

tions have been made to the ST over the standard Fiesta including a 15mm ride height reduction, modified geometry, low profile tyres on larger wheels and Fords Torque Vectoring Control system.

oped at the Nurburgring in Germany – the country in which the three-door version will also be built.

With a 132kW 1.6 turbo and six speed manual gearbox up front the result appears to be a capable package in the right hands.

The recently released footage suggests the Fiesta ST will be as exciting as previous ST badged models and is adding to anticipation amongst enthusiasts prior to the Australian launch later this year.

ELECTRIC SLIDE: The Ford Fiesta ST is promising impressive agility after footage was released from the esteemed proving ground ‘Track 7’ in Lommel, Belgium.

Volkswagen’s super model Golf wagon sheds the kilos Volkswagen has shed the weight equivalent of a large adult from the next version of its Golf wagon, and fuel economy is the winner. The 105kg weight saving for the next-generation family load-lugger, announced at the Geneva motor show, means the German premium car-maker can launch a version of the Golf in Europe that uses only 3.3 litres per 100km – 0.6L/100km better than Toyota’s environmental hero, the Prius hybrid. The Golf wagon also introduces allwheel-drive underpinnings, a feature that should be handy for ice-covered European roads, but also alludes to

ed more room in the boot, growing from 505 litres to 605 litres compared with the last generation that has only been on sale in Australia since 2010. Rear seats down, and the Golf will swallow a bigger 1620L load, 125L more than the model it will replace. The load-lugging Golf is the same as the hatchback only as far as the trailing edge of the driver’s door.

Beyond that, the shape of the hatchback’s rear pillar has been pushed back to the rear quarters of the wagon, with the rear quarter windows forming part of the pillar. This helps the new Estate, as the wagon version is called, look longer and sleeker than it is.

Inside, the show car features a dash and front seats that mirror that of the Golf 7 hatchback. No information is given on how much extra space is handed over to the rear seats, but a 60:40 split-fold seatback that folds almost flat provides much-needed interior versatility. The rear tailgate appears to open conventionally, although the wraparound rear pillars eat into its width.

Off-roading on Patrol N

issan has departed from the utilitarian, rough-and-tumble style of its Y61 Patrol, which lives on as the brand’s less expensive diesel option in similar style to the D22 and D40 Navara utes.

This replaces traditional sway bars and shock absorbers with a fluid-filled network of pistons, pipes and accumulators that both reduce body roll and increase wheel articulation.

Interior Inside the Patrol is better than outside. We do not usually comment on a vehicle’s styling but we dislike its slabby, flabby, strangely rounded look that is also slightly ostentatious and tacky. The huge external dimensions – 5140mm long, 1995mm wide and 1940mm high – make the Y62 bigger than a LandCruiser 200 and yield plenty of interior space, including limo-like legroom for the centre row and respectable amounts of space for the three-seat third bench. Yes this thing seats eight, perfect for the fertile or the popular. Although potential breeding partners or friends may be put off by the looks. The Patrol is a comfortable, quiet place to be. Everything feels solid and well made, but we were not convinced by the swathes of wood trim and the only colour scheme is 90s bachelor pad black. The seats are like vast armchairs and although the number of storage options is limited, what does exist is of the large variety, such as the door bins, glove-box and bin beneath the central arm-rest. We tested the Patrol during hot weather and its powerful air-con system cooled down that black interior in no time, helped by activating the rear vents that blow cool air across the windows, killing heat from the hot Australian sun before it enters the cabin. Apart from serving as a display for the excellent reversing camera, the Patrol’s central screen is a bit pointless in that there is no sat-nav, a glaring omission given it is available on the $28,900 Pulsar Ti.

dated and while we’re complaining, the indicators have no lane-change function, we dislike the old-school foot-operated parking brake and the massive centre row head restraints spoil good visibility. Folding down the rear seats to turn the Patrol into a luxury van is easy, as is access to the rearmost row, helped by the centre row’s fold and tumble action.

Engine and transmission Bad news. The Patrol devours fuel from its 140-litre tank like there is no tomorrow, while making tomorrow less likely given the prospect of climate change and international unrest once the crude oil runs out. Officially it consumes 14.5 litres per 100 kilometres. Mainly suburban driving resulted in an average approaching 20L/100km, off-roading caused it to gulp an astonishing 30L/100km and during an hour of driving in city congestion, the trip computer reported upward of 40L/100km. On a relatively flat freeway run at a constant 100km/h we saw an agreeable 10L/100km. Be in no doubt, this thing will require regular $200 fill-ups of 95 RON premium unleaded, so get saving those supermarket dockets. But the engine is an absolute gem, emitting an exotic V8 howl without ever being intrusive and packing plenty of punch in a smooth, effortless and refined manner. It means the Patrol is always sprightly and responsive and has more than enough go for hauling this almost three-tonne beast across off-road obstacles. Tackling a set of sweeping turns in third gear it positively whizzes along, with instantaneous responses that can only come from a powerful, free-revving naturally aspirated V8.

Ride and handling Having recently driven the all-new Range Rover, the Patrol stacks up impressively well in the ride and handling department, especially this Ti variant with its fancy suspension system.

Ironically for such a thirsty vehicle, the screen’s primary use appears to be displaying – in numerous formats – how much fuel the 5.6-litre V8 is slurping, in addition to readouts on the multi-function trip computer in the instrument pack.

Attack a set of fast, sweeping bends and the Patrol feels more composed than the Rangie, and the speed-sensitive steering that is soft and fluffy round town becomes perfectly weighted, brilliantly direct and pin-point accurate – better than the Range Rover’s woolly feeling helm.

Said trip computer is a bit clunky and

vealed a surprising nimbleness and adjustability on the throttle, with powerful brakes, rock-solid stability and loads of grip building confidence. It all makes the Patrol feel much smaller than it is and is truly impressive for any SUV, let alone one this big. The stability control system can get a bit intrusive, slowing the vehicle down rather than just helping keep it on the desired line but let’s face it, it is better to be safe than sorry in a big, hefty top-heavy vehicle. Ride quality is pretty much spot on, ironing out almost all undulations and exhibiting none of the small bump shudder the Range Rover’s otherwise wonderfully wafty air suspension transmits into the cabin. Despite continuing with a separate chassis design, it blows other hardcore offroaders – that’s you, LandCruiser – into the weeds. We were able to go off-road in absolute comfort and the Patrol’s imperious indifference to obstacles just made everything look and feel so easy. So easy in fact that we fear it is all too easy to get out of one’s depth while offroading.

Verdict Nissan has again impressed us with its engineering prowess and ability to imbue its vehicles with an unshakeable sense of solidity. As much as we love the fantastic V8 in the Y61 Patrol for its fantastic sound effects, smooth power delivery and effortless nature we question the logic of offering this as sole engine option.
