red wine produced at Mount Cole near Ararat has captured the attention of the Chinese market after winning gold medals at one of the biggest international wine competitions in Asia.

“We’ve been travelling across for three or four years and recently sent three pallets for a market that is very interesting. For example, one thing we’ve been trying to get through is how screw caps allow for better quality assurance than corking. One of our difficulties is that it’s very hard now to get wines bottled under cork in Australia.”

The Fenix Rising Reserve Shiraz 2010 from Dr Graeme Bertuch’s Mount Cole Wineworks impressed judges at the China Wine and Spirits Awards Best Value 2013, the only awards in the world judged specifically for the Chinese market.

Dr Bertuch said the success was also good for the Grampians Pyrenees wine industry. The best-value awards reflect the ‘best value’ from the highest to and lowest areas in the price spectrum and in Hong Kong and China being considered ‘best value’ at all price levels is critical.

Judges, including key Chinese wine importers, distributors, wholesalers, restaurant group owners and sommeliers or wine stewards based in China, assed 3300 entries from 25 countries. Dr Bertuch’s shiraz was one of 219 gold medals won by Australian producers who won the overall medal tally from France, 97.

Winning awards is far from new for Mount Cole Wineworks which collected major accolades at Sydney International Wine Competition.

for several years with a cellar door at Buangor, said the success was timely considering Mount Cole Wineworks’ push into the Chinese market.

The 2010 Fenix Rising Reserve Shiraz won best lightbodied dry red, best red wine of the show and was runner-up best wine in the show.

“We’ve been concentrating on getting into China and this gives us credibility in the Chinese market,” he said.

Eltringham wins state engineering award Horsham Rural City Council’s retired technical services general manager David Eltringham has won a statewide engineering award. Mr Eltringham won Public Works Engineer of the Year award at a 2013 Awards for Excellence dinner in Melbourne. The award was part of the Institute of Public Works Engineering Australia, Victoria Division conference. Horsham mayor Cr David Grimble announced the win and congratulated Mr Eltringham on his award. “David won the award in part for his extensive and outstanding involvement with the Wimmera Intermodal Freight Terminal or WIFT project, but also for his over 42 years of service within

the engineering discipline and his role as Engineers Australia president,” he said. Cr Grimble said the WIFT project also won a special commendation certificate in a Capital Works Excellence category.

Festival success Paint with passion points to growth

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Color choice is individual and dependent on many factors, such as personality, functional needs and a concern for the overall aesthetics of your home.


elighted organisers of a successful 2013 Horsham Country Music Festival are confident the event will continue to break crowd-attendance records.

At Wades we provide the right professional advice to guide you towards the perfect scheme to suit your expectations and requirements.

Festival coordinator Lyall Wheaton said figures from last weekend’s four-day extravaganza reflected significant growth.

Julie Francis can visit your home or see her in store to ensure all schemes compliment your existing décor or fully re-invent your home from start to finish.

He said more than 2000 people, many from outside the region, soaked up the festival experience and predicted a further 20 percent increase in crowd numbers next year.

“We had attendance records broken for every night with numbers up over 30 percent this year,” he said.

“All the feedback we’ve been getting has been extremely positive and everyone is saying they will be back for more.”

Spectacular Crowd numbers continually grew at Sawyer Park throughout the festival with 300 attending an AVIS-Max Wright Cars Bush Balladeers Thursday-night opener, 500 gathering for a K and J Baker Tribute night on Friday, 700 providing a peak during the ACE Radio Country Music Spectacular on Saturday. A crowd of 500 stayed on for a Golden Grain Gospel Music Marathon on Sunday. “We also had record numbers of people attend walk-up and busker events where the overall quality was also better than previous years,” Mr Wheaton said. Mr Wheaton said the strong turn-out would help Horsham

Country Music Association work on and promote next year’s event. “It’s probably fair to say that it will provide the best financial return in all our six years in running the festival. It gives us encouragement and enthusiasm to move forward,” he said. “As well as the great entertainment, it’s important to consider how good this event is for Horsham district. “Between 30 to 40 percent of the audience came from

SA and a high percentage of people travelled long distances from NSW. Some people were staying for longer than a week and goodness knows how much money that has pumped into the local economy.” Mr Wheaton also praised the many performers, many of them high-quality national acts. “Everyone worked so well together and that really came out during the performances. It was fantastic,” he said.

Spotlight shift scheduled Horsham fabric, craft and home-interior store Spotlight is likely to start trading from a new home in Horsham Plaza in early June.

Horsham Plaza centre manager Allison Roberts said a major fit-out for the business, shifting into an area previously occupied by Maxi Foods from its McLachlan Street site, would

start on April 15.

“We expect their fit-out to take about six or seven weeks,” she said. Mrs Roberts said Spotlight would operate next to the Reject Shop. She said there had also been strong leasing inquiries in the last few weeks for a space previously occupied by a chemist.

Labor labours on Social worker puts hand up

Thursday, March 28, 2013


their home and raised their family.




ome of us found ourselves chuckling as we followed the Federal Labor Party circus in the media last week.

It was hard to keep a straight face when the serious intrigue and plotting involving some of our parliamentary heavyweights started to resemble a distorted and bizarre form of school-yard tiggy.

and in turn remained in control of the country.

In a typical Australian response, satirical jokes were soon flowing through social communication channels like a flash flood – quips such as ‘I’ve seen a better ‘spill’ in my kitchen’ quickly doing the rounds.

The only thing missing from all the bluster and log-jam of microphones and commentary for a few hours last Thursday was someone saying ‘you’re it’.

Some people suggested the whole saga would have made a great subject for a Shakespearean comedy. Others were less refined, suggesting that key Labor Party personalities should call themselves the ‘Wizards of Oz’ because they were searching for a heart, a brain and a soul in the absence of traditional Labor Party values and integrity.

In the end, an awful lot of ‘nothing’ happened and Julia Gillard retained the Labor Party leadership

The reality of course is that as far as Australian governance goes – this was far from funny at all.

YOUR SAY Time to move on SIR,- I hope Federal Labor can now put the malicious rumourmongering aside now that it has unanimously re-elected Julia Gillard as PM and move on to governing the country as a united party. The alternative government lead by Abbott is too scary a thought. He will lead us back to the pre-history days with his promise to scrap the carbon tax. Workers will be worse off,

We can only hope that the broader Australian electorate considers how much damage will be caused by an Abbott tea-party

“Being able to listen, understand and advocate for others has been fundamental to my experience and education in social work, and I think it will be the crucial skill in being the parliamentary representative for Mallee.”

There is no need to plead the obvious and ask the government to concentrate on governing instead of busying itself with petty internal party politics. The queue with people lined up with that demand is already a mile long. Parliamentarians or anyone occupying elevated public office must surely realise that a new generation of Australians is emerging and moulding its own standards and aspirations on what they see and hear.


especially those on the basic wage as penalty rates are scrapped, disability pensioners will again be the losers because the good work by the Labor Government to increase their payments will be overturned, and our technology improvements with the NBN will be scrapped – not for cost reasons but ideological reasons alone.

“I love the Mallee – it’s a wonderful place to work, live and enjoy life, but I have some valuable new perspectives to offer about what will be important to our region in future,” Ms Webster said.

This wasn’t some political backroom mob trying to get itself sorted; it was the government, the crew that Australians elected to run the country. You know - that group responsible for everything from the economy, health and education to social welfare and national defence. How embarrassing.

government. After watching NSW, Victoria and Queensland since coalition governments have been in power and the massive job losses which have occurred, ask yourself this one question: can my household budget extend to higher interest rates, potentially thousands of job losses and the uncertainty that a coalition government will bring to industrial relations? John Herring, Kaniva

NEW CANDIDATE: Anne Webster has joined a group of candidates keen to represent the Nationals for the seat of Mallee at this year’s Federal Election.  Picture: CONTRIBUTED

A social worker, small business operator, researcher and mother-of-three believes she brings the right mix of skills and perspective to the National Party to ensure the party’s long-term success in the Wimmera-Mallee. Anne Webster has joined fellow candidates Russell McKenzie, Andrew Broad, Reid Mather, Michael Adamson and Greg Cruickshank in contesting pre-selection for the Nationals for the seat of Mallee. Mallee, held by the Nationals’ John Forrest for 20 years and one of the safest conservative seats in Australia, will become vacant when Mr Forrest retires at the Federal Election later this year. Ms Webster moved to Mildura as a newly-wed 35 years ago and said she was now keen to give back to the region where she and her husband have made

Ms Webster is founding director of community development group Zoe Support Australia. The group has established a Mildura house and childcare service that supports pregnant and new parents with a focus on getting them back into school. She also chairs Mallee Accommodation and Support Program that tackles homelessness.

Katter’s party Mildura grape-grower Vince Cirillo, meanwhile, will know within the next week if he will be Katter’s Australian Party candidate for Mallee. Mr Cirillo, who plans to visit the Wimmera at the end of April if he wins preselection, said the electorate had ‘lost so much under the Nationals’ during last two decades and there was a need to reinvigorate confidence in Mallee’s farming sector. “There needs to be a future for young people to stay on the land. If we don’t change course for them the future might be very bleak,” he said. Lydia Senior already has Australian Labor Party endorsement to stand for Mallee and the Liberal Party, which can contest the seat despite being in coalition with the Nationals, has yet to confirm or deny if it will call for candidates.

Grace in top group Spotlight on navy in Anzac Day services for national prize

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Horsham RSL sub branch will fly the white ensign Australian flag of the Royal Australian Navy on Anzac Day this year.


orsham St Brigid’s College student Grace Ostapiw has finished runner-up in the Victorian section of a national Simpson History Prize.

The branch received permission to officially fly the flag in the year of the 100th anniversary of the first RAN fleet arriving in Sydney Harbour.

The year-11 student was one of about 1000 teenagers across Australia who entered the competition with essays and audio-visual presentations involving the story of ANZAC.

Commodore Michael Houghton, RAN’s director-general of major surface ships and defence material organisation will be attending officer at Horsham Anzac ceremonies.

The competition asked students to ‘investigate what primary sources revealed about the Gallipoli experience and explore the extent to which they explained the origins of the ANZAC Legend.’ Grace, who captured the attention of last year’s crowd at Horsham ANZAC Day commemoration service with a moving presentation, spent many hours preparing her competition submission. She was in Canberra to accept accolades with state winners and runners-up last week. Federal School Education Minister Peter Garrett, who congratulated winners and runners-up, said the top performers in the competition had shown ‘an impressive depth of understanding about Gallipoli and our ANZAC history’. “The calibre of entries was high with students’ essays highlighting the battlefield conditions at Gallipoli vividly through the use of primary sources,” he said.

Commodore Houghton is in charge of the $3.1-billion project to build HMAS Canberra and HMAS Adelaide, Helicopter Landing Dock amphibious assault ships.

The Horsham branch will have a special luncheon for Commodore

Houghton and navy RSL members on April 26.

Winners and runners-up received a medallion to celebrate their achievements and took part in a special twoday Canberra study program which included visits to Parliament House, the Australian War Memorial and the National Museum of Australia. Mr Garrett said the Simpson Prize would continue to foster and showcase high-quality student work which directly aligned with Austral-

ian curriculum. The emphasis on the use of ‘primary sources’ in this year’s competition linked to the historical skills specified in the Australian Curriculum: History. Jessica Greenan from Fintona Girls’ School won the Victorian section and with other winners will travel to Gallipoli. Grace hopes to eventually work in the communication industry.

Ararat Rural City Council will have a byelection later this year to replace Cr Murray Woods. Mayor Cr Ian Wilson confirmed that Cr Woods, who has been on the council since December 2008, had resigned due to ill health. “While it is very unfortunate that Cr Woods is unable to continue his role as councillor, the

future,” he said.

“Cr Woods has requested that people not contact him at this time, and we would request the community to respect his privacy.

“On behalf of the council I thank Cr Woods for his outstanding commitment to our community, and wish him and his family all the best.”

Plastic Fantastic Busking bash at Natimuk at Ararat gallery 16

Thursday, March 28, 2013


nique work by prominent SA artist and designer Annabelle Collett will feature in a solo exhibition at Ararat Regional Art Gallery next month.

The singer-songwriting organiser of a busking and entertainment gathering in Natimuk on Sunday has invited poets, singers, guitarists and story tellers to use the occasion to ‘get up and perform’.

boards, microphones and a mixing desk. I’m getting up and performing and the opportunity will be there for anyone else too.”

Chris Sallows has organised the free-ofcharge RamsHead – The Buskers Bash on his vacant-block property at 49 Main Street to pursue a personal love of music and performance.

“It will start with quiet music at 10am and the plan is for it to push well into the afternoon. If it is successful it might become an ongoing event in Natimuk. I’m also keen to take the concept on the road and take it to Melbourne,” he said.

“I have a love for performing and there are few places where there is an openslather open-microphone approach. I had the space and the gear so I thought why not put on my own show and invite people up to have a go?” he said.

The ‘Plastic Fantastic’ exhibition, from April 14 to 28 and as part of SALA 2012 – the Festival of South Australian Living Artists, will feature ‘found’ plastic sourced on road trips across SA and Victoria.

sign, evoking a range of cultural associations with fashion, interior decorating and the crafted object.

The domestic detritus Collett collects by colour in her studio provides both the material and inspiration for her creations.

Collett has worked full time as a professional artist and designer for more than 30 years. She has exhibited extensively and is represented in Ararat gallery, Art Gallery of South Australia, Mildura Arts Centre, Northern Territory Museum and Art Gallery and the Victorian State Craft collections.

Plastic in all its forms produces enormous amounts of everyday waste and Collett uses recycled ‘trash’ to fashion a vast array of artwork. She uses discarded materials from domestic items such as plastic lids, children’s toys, broken jewellery and containers and implements to make bold and vibrant work, highlighting the aesthetics of waste.

Ararat gallery director Anthony Camm said in association with the presentation of ‘Plastic Fantastic’, Collett would lead children on a journey through colour, texture, invention and endless possibility to create artworks

With a background in textile art, Collett’s sculptures, wall pieces, lighting and clothing form through many methods and process that link art, craft and de-

during school-holiday workshops next Wednesday. “The resulting pieces will form an exhibition called ‘Colour the World’ which will be presented from April 5 to May 5,” he said. “Enrolments are being taken for these inspiring school-holiday workshops to be presented over two sessions.” The workshops will be from 9am to noon and 1pm to 4pm and open to children aged from 8 to 14 at a cost of $15 per child. Contact the gallery on 5352 2836 for details and registration. Ararat mayor Cr Ian Wilson will officially open ‘Plastic Fantastic’ and ‘Colour the World’ at 6pm on Friday week.

Mr Sallows revealed that he had outlaid a significant amount of money to organise the event, had council approval and was desperate for people to attend.

“There is no time-frame or permission required for performing at this event so you can just turn up on the day.” Mr Sallows said people seeking more information could call him on 0409 171 773 or email

Dog expert primed for return International dog-behavior expert Tony Knight is likely to return to the Wimmera later this year after a sell-out presentation in Stawell. Organiser Anne Johns of Stawell said Knight would return for another presentation in May or September and possible a two-day foundation course in Horsham. “We sold out and probably could’ve again. We had 60 people attend and had very positive feedback from everyone,” she said. “Since then I have had inquiries about when he will be coming back and I

have already got names on a waiting list.” Mrs Johns said people from Horsham. Minyip, Stawell, Ararat and Halls Gap attended the presentation at Stawell Secondary College and there was also an inquiry from Hamilton. “Tony was very thorough, comical and answered a lot of questions for dog owners who had major problems and others who just needed a little help,” she said. “It was great to see people leave on the night saying things like: ‘I never thought of it like that’ or ‘I can’t wait to get home and try this method’ and so on.”

Wimmera Southern Mallee LLEN

Knight, who lives in France and the son of renowned English ‘dog whisperer’ Jan Fennell, brought up a box of his mother’s book ‘The Dog Listener’ and a CD called ‘Taking the lead’ to the presentation and both sold out. Knight uses an Amichien bonding technique to work with dogs which is based on a wolf-pack hierarchy system. “As owners if we can think more like our dogs rather than humanizing them, it makes a better place for dog and owner,” Mrs Johns said.

Harleys ride Horsham


ore than 300 HarleyDavidson motorcycle enthusiasts will rumble into Horsham this weekend to take part in Victorian State Rally of HOG, or Harley Owners Group.

Horsham Police Highway Patrol has been involved in the event’s Thunder Run. Sergeant John McTaggart asked road users to ‘exercise a little road courtesy and patience to ensure everyone’s safety’ when coming across the Harley parade on Easter Saturday.

Rally committee member Shane Rees encouraged people with a keen interest in classic motorcycles to watch a Rally Thunder Ride pass through Horsham and to see motorcycles close up at a Show ‘n’ Shine at May Park on Easter Saturday.

“The chapter will have corner marshals throughout the circuit to indicate the route to riders,” he said.


Birthdays, weddings & any special occasions

Mr Rees said the Horsham rally had attracted Harley devotees from as far as Bundaberg in Queensland.

“A spectacular parade of Harleys will be passing through Horsham about 10.15am along McPherson and Wilson streets and after a short scenic ride, return about 10.45am from Golf Course Road into O’Callaghan Parade and Firebrace Street,” he said.

Caring for pet rabbits

Thursday, March 28, 2013


aster seems to have come early this year – it’s like we’ve only just recovered from Christmas!

Walking through the shops, however, there are chickens, eggs and bunnies everywhere. I have to admit, however, that my favourite rabbits are more likely to be furry than chocolaty. At Animal Aid, we see many rabbits in both our clinic and shelter. Traditionally, rabbits – along with guinea pigs – have been considered pets for small children. All too often when the novelty of these cute, fluffy creatures wears off, they spend many years living in hutches without too much attention from their owners. I’ve always thought it’s a great shame, both for the bunnies in question and the owners who aren’t getting the most from their pets. Luckily attitudes are changing. Australian rabbit owners are realising that their bunnies can have huge amounts of personality and form rewarding bonds with their owners and other pets. There are many important points to consider in owning a rabbit because these creatures are very different from dogs and cats and have very different requirements in terms of their housing, health care, and particularly diet. Rabbits are herbivores and their teeth and gastrointestinal tracts are perfectly engineered to cope with large quantities of fibre such as grass and hay. The flip side of this is that sugary or starchy foods can play havoc with their teeth and digestion. The ideal rabbit diet consists

primarily of good-quality hay and fresh grass. They will also love leafy greens and smaller amounts of vegetable such as carrot, with fruit as a treat. Commercial pelleted diets should be avoided because they are high in energy and low in fibre and will result in overweight rabbits.

Vaccination Rabbits should also be vaccinated each year, providing protection against the rabbit Calicivirus. Most rabbit owners will be aware that rabbits are prone to the fatal viral disease myxamotosis, which kills many wild rabbits each year. Sadly there is no vaccine available in Australia, but we can protect rabbits by keeping them away from mosquitoes which spread the disease. This means keeping them indoors, or making sure that

hutches are well screened. In addition, it’s worth investing in having rabbits desexed, particularly if they live in pairs or groups – the term ‘breeding like rabbits’ doesn’t come from nowhere! Even single rabbits should be desexed, as neutering helps avoid behavioural problems such as aggression. Many rabbits can be trained to use a litter tray, and as such can be fabulous indoor pets for a small house or apartment dwellers. They will often form lovely relationships with other pets such as cats and dogs. On the whole, with the appropriate care, rabbits can make really valuable pets, chock full of affection and quirky habits. • Dr Vogt is senior veterinarian at Animal Aid in Melbourne.

Chaser bin win at field days A Dunstan chaser bin designed to work on 12-metre controlled traffic systems won Machine of the Year award at the 2013 Wimmera Machinery Field Days.

WIN BIN: Dunstan factory manager Chris Barker with the company’s controlled traffic chaser bin. Picture: CONTRIBUTED

20th Anniversary WFL Reunion at Coughlin Park Round 1, April 20th vs Minyip Murtoa

The bin features an hydraulically controlled swing-up grain table that bridges the gap between bin and header, allowing both units to remain on standard ‘tram tracks’ and greatly reducing compaction.

We would like to invite all past players, coaches, committee and supporters of Horsham Saints to come along for a great day. • Auctioning of commemorative jumpers • Catered meal in club room All past and present players welcome. Please RSVP for catering purposes.

Chaser bins previously created additional tracks as they positioned close enough to headers to line up with unloading augurs. Dunstan director Craig Miller said the award was a great start to the company’s 50th year of production. “Dunstan was a pioneer in

paddock grain handling. It’s very satisfying to receive acknowledgement that we’re still leading the way,” he said.

“Other manufacturers have tried to solve the 12-metre controlled traffic problem but without any real success. The

beauty of our solution is that it is so simple. And it can be easily modified to accommodate any header.”

Realities of aged care A

Unsurprisingly, the aged-care sector is a fast-growing industry, but there seems to be a number of misunderstandings in relation to how aged care arrangements work, and especially the costs involved. Here we clarify some of the key issues. Trading hours: 8.00am – 5.00pm or by appointment 62a McPherson St, Horsham VISIT OUR WEBSITE:

Beginning the process Downsizing the family home in retirement is usually a good option. You simply choose what you can afford and the location you’d like to live in then go house-hunting.

Checking care level needs is the first step to looking at aged care options with health assessments usually done by nurses based in local hospitals.

Many Australians mistakenly assume that ‘government funded’ aged care means that if they are an age pensioner the services are free or included in their pension.

Aged care facilities charge residents a range of accommodation and care fees including an accommodation bond, accommodation charges, daily care and extra services fees, plus a means-tested fee, which generally requires those who can afford to pay more, do so. The government subsidises some of the costs based upon their assessments. What can come as a shock to many people is that the accommodation bonds for some facilities can be hundreds of thousands of dollars. And the ongoing fees can cost thousands of dollars a month, so

Aged care and the age pension

Yes, some of the fees are aligned to the age pension rate, and for some care will be well covered by their Centrelink or Veterans’ Affairs entitlements, but many others must personally pay for their care and accommodation. Be realistic and start planning for your aged care needs now, and if applicable, those of your parents. Talk to your financial adviser so they can help you get on the right path to funding your retirement and aged care needs. • Robert Goudie is an authorised representative of Meritum Financial Group Pty Ltd AFSL 245569.

1. True or false? Whale oil was used in the transmissions of many cars up until 1973. 2. The race has been on for a while now to perfect the electric vehicle. William Morrison built the first conventional electric car in what year?

A. 1932 B. 1891 C. 1912 D. 1977

3. What distinctive Wimmera land formation formed in the Devonian era 380 million years ago from river sediment accumulating to a depth of seven kilometres? 4. Many Wimmera people who grew up in the 1960s and ‘70s would have fond memories of watching Mario Milano in what televised sport? 5. Horsham sub-branch of the RSL has

permission to fly the white ensign or version of the Australian flag on Anzac Day. The white ensign represents what arm of the Australian defence force? 6. Mount Cole Wineworks near Ararat has won a gold medal at the CWSA, a prestigious international competition based in what country? 7. Now is the time many of us are considering influenza vaccinations. In what year did an unusually deadly influenza pandemic nicknamed the ‘Spanish Flu’ start killing between 50-million to 100-million of 500-million people infected worldwide? 8. The opening of duck season means wild ducks are in danger from hunters at the moment. They can be also

vulnerable to what paralytic disease caused by bacteria that produces toxins, one which is now used in cosmetic and medical procedures? 9. ‘Migration’ was a theme of last weekend’s Lake Bolac Eel Festival. Research has revealed Lake Bolac’s eels migrate where to spawn before their offspring swim home? 10. What am I? My tap root, which can be orange, purple, red or yellow, is a common worldwide source of food and the leafy green part of me is also edible. My wild ancestors probably came from Iran and Afghanistan but my common version originated in Holland in the 17th Century, the colour of particular cultivars making me popular in the struggle for Dutch independence.

Answers: 1. True. 2. B. 1891. He built the six-passenger machine in Des Moines, Iowa in the United States. It had a top speed of 23kmh. 3. The Grampians ranges. 4. Professional wrestling. His real name is Mario Bulfone. 5. Royal Australian Navy. This year is the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the first RAN fleet into Sydney Harbour. 6. China. CWSA stands for China Wine and Spirits Awards. 7. 1918. It killed one to three percent of the world’s population at the time. 8. Botulism. Botulinum toxin type A or BTX-A blocks neuromuscular transmission and was first used on humans to treat ‘crossed eyes’ or strabismus in 1980. The bacteria can develop naturally with the decomposition of plants and insects in oxygen-stressed environments leading to mass bird kills in the wild. 9. South Coral Sea off the coast of North Queensland. 10. Carrot.

rarat Rural City Council has two dogs available for adoption from its Ararat pound.

Thursday, March 21, 2013

High Fraar impressive Hockey hunt been enjoying good success courtesy of his consistent gallopers. Bungalally Boy is one horse in particular who is earning his keep at the stables. This continued at Donald last Monday as the chestnut took his place in a 1200-metre sprint event for class-one gallopers.

One is a black Labrador-cross, female, young, energetic and friendly. The other is a male fox terrier-cross, between four and six years old, friendly and a great companion dog. If you know the owners of any of these animals, or can offer one of the dogs a new home, please contact Ararat Rural City Council during business hours on 5355 0200.



Former Dodson apprentice Holly McKechnie was booked to ride the gelding, quoted at $9 in most betting markets. Once the starting stalls burst open Bungalally Boy began like a shot out of a gun landing in a prominent position, giving his Horsham hoop an armchair ride up on the pace throughout.

The four-year-old bay mare took her place in a maiden event over 1850 metres. Horsham hoop Christine Puls was booked to take the mount and was also chasing her first win since returning to the saddle after an injury enforced layoff.

At the home turn McKechnie steered the son of ‘stud dud’ Kempinsky into clear galloping room and with a couple of reminders from the ‘shilelagh’ Bungalally Boy was able to produce a tenacious effort to overhaul eventual second place getter De Pony in the run to the post recording a winning margin of two lengths.

cKenzie Creek-based trainer Paul Preusker made the hour-long trip to Edenhope last Saturday with his promising but equally frustrating staying galloper High Fraar.

Local punters were hopeful of a bold showing from High Fraar backing her into favoritisim as the starter called the horses into their starting positions. Once the field of eight were sent on their way, Puls was able to slide into the box seat just behind the leaders. Approaching the 600-metre mark, the daughter of recently deceased stallion Fraar was travelling like a winner, and in the blink of an eye established a three-length advantage over her rivals at the home turn. In the run to the judge High Fraar treated her rivals arrogantly increasing her lead to win by five lengths. The dominance of this victory suggests this girl has found her niche as a stayer and fun times are sure to be ahead for her patient owners.

Homers and Hoppers throw down gauntlet By DEAN LAWSON


omers are set to continue a Horsham Cricket Association dynasty after premiership victory confirmed their status as the best cricket outfit across the central Wimmera.

The extended Hopper family remains at the core of the talented group which dispatched Rupanyup-Minyip at Horsham City Oval last weekend and are not going anywhere. The Hopper legacy, stretching back to association patriarch the late Cec Hopper, picked up by his sons David and Barry and now in the hands of Ash, Chris, Simon and Tim, will continue to throw down the gauntlet to all challengers. It was no surprise that Chris Hopper, after bludgeoning big scores with his aggressive batting style and continually taking wickets with his leftarm orthodox spinners, won the association’s Cec Hopper Medal. In games including finals this season he made 746 runs at 67.82 and captured 37-474 at 12.81. When the Hoppers fail or need help to make things happen in the Horsham cricket world then others around seem to pick up the baton. That’s exactly what happened in the grand final. Off-spinning all-rounder Simon Hopper, 5-38, proved a destroyer as Rupanyup-Minyip limped to 196 on Saturday but it was Pigeons skipper Lachie Jones who then led the way in the run chase. First-drop Jones, in form and making 640 runs during the season but often batting in the shadows of efficient opening pair Sandy Hodge and Jason Templeton or big-hitting Chris Hopper this season, shone in

the grand final. His defiant and unbeaten 73 shut the door on the BluePanthers attack which didn’t have the arsenal to crack the powerful Homers batting list.

Association presentations on Sunday night reflected the home-and-away season’s outstanding players. NoradjuhaToolondo’s Matthew Combe won A Grade batting aggregate award with 639 runs at 58.09 and Chris Hopper won the batting average with 63.56 and bowling aggregate with 33-412 at 12.48. Jordan Huff from Noradjuha-Toolondo won the bowling average with 11.34.

Never enough Homers lost only five wickets in tracking down the target, Jones top-scoring, Simon Hopper capping off a fantastic final with 44 and Templeton making 35. Rupanyup-Minyip’s score from the previous day was never enough on a good batting but potentially turning wicket and considering the team lacked a spinner capable of consistently taking the ball away from the right-handers. Predictably, unflappable veteran Paul Morgan top-scored with 62 and his older brother Craig was next best 31. The Morgan brothers, both

FIGHTER: Rup-Minyip veteran Paul Morgan battled hard, scoring 62 and sharing a 73run partnership with his brother Craig, before bowling 23 overs.

In other Horsham Association grand finals, RupanyupMinyip scored 156 and 0-51 to beat Natimuk-Goroke 123 and 6-112 and Blackheath-Dimboola, 5-174, won its second of the best-of-three C Grade finals by beating Horsham Saints, 8-162.

Kees comfortable as favourites T


HIGH FIVE: Kalkee president Dean Johns, coach Matt Beddison and captain Paul Christian with the spoils of a successful 2012 season.

alk casually with any Horsham District Football League supporter and the conversation will ultimately involve a simple but profound declaration. It will go something like: ‘regardless of what happens this season, Kalkee already has one hand on the premiership’ or ‘you may as well dust off the premiership cup and give it to them now’ and so on. It is true that the reigning premier looms as big if not bigger and more powerful than previous years and it seems on the surface at least that the early predictions might be close to the mark. It’s a curious circumstance, particularly for the Kalkee coaching group which has to develop creative motivational strategies. But if the build has worried Kees coach Matt Beddison it certainly doesn’t show. In fact the pragmatic Beddison said this week that the motivation was simple – to continue to back up the hard work of club volunteers be successful for the next five to 10 years. He said talk about Kalkee being red-hot premiership favourites weeks out from the first game meant little. “For us it’s not really relevant, especially a couple of weeks away from the first game. Our focus has to

be game by game. We know that we are the hunted so we have to take that next step to stay on top,” he said. “From a club point of view you work so hard from a coaching panel and committee level to develop club success. You then want to enjoy the success and you don’t want to take the foot off after working so hard to get there.” Beddison guaranteed that his camp was under few illusions that there remained a tough season ahead.

“As I said, we are the hunted so we have to stay a step ahead and stay there as long as possible. That means working on strength and consistency. Believe me; it’s better to be in this position than to be struggling.”

Recruits Kalkee has earned ‘unbackable favourite’ tag during the pre-season after confirmation that Schultz brothers Steve and Grant were returning from Warrack Eagles and others including Aaron Barnett and Damian Thomson

were on the list. Throw in others such as Ben Hobbs, Andrew Brown, Ashley Hastie and Lachie Robinson and there is suddenly a fresh look about the Kees. Beddison: “We’ve worked so hard on developing our juniors and they have had the benefit of experiencing senior success and they, as the future of the club, are probably our numberone priority. “We’re not really about recruiting a heap of players – more just to keep

“New players create more depth and give us the potential to push guys harder and demand more consistency from them. Barring injury, we’re going to have guys fighting for positions all year. “We’re blessed in having good tall players and our game for the last couple of years has been based around those guys. A key has been to find smaller, running players to complement them. “The fact that we’ve had injection of new players has created a fresh sense of urgency and excitement. The group has revelled in the extra pressure for players to hold spots and created more enthusiasm.”

There is also little doubt that the coaching reputation of Farr, Demons premiership mastermind for seven years and in charge of Roos after a controversial split with his childhood club, would go through the roof.

fantastic one for the club. He has brought a new dimension and level of training, taking it to another level. And that’s where we are wanting to go with our ambitions and aims,” he said.

Farr’s appointment this year has provided bedrock for a major selfanalysis and development project at Dimboola which seems to be already paying dividends.

“We’ve heard stories about high fitness levels when Hugh Delahunty and the Lawson brothers were in charge years ago. But we’ve had people who were around then say they have never seen such intensive training as this year.”

The Roos have welcomed Farr’s rigid approach to fitness and discipline and players have flocked to pre-season training since his appointment. Club president Rob Pyers went as far as declaring that fans ‘without question’ would see the fittest Dimboola run onto the ground this year ‘in living memory’. “Stuart’s appointment has been a

Like many clubs, Dimboola has experienced enormous peaks and troughs through modern times. The Roos have fielded outstanding teams in certain years only to crumble and start the hard yards all over again the next. It’s a pattern the Dimboola collective is obviously keen to stop.

“Our long-term plan is absolute sustainability. We want to have a club that plays high-quality football year in year out that can sustain itself economically and maintain the best principles involving organisation and leadership. We want to be seen as the best club on and off the field,” Mr Pyers said. “A key to that is being seen as a strong community club with a strong family focus. We need to offer something different to everyone else and that includes off as well as on-field.”

HARD WORKER: Ryan Bell was an important player for the Roos in 2012. Picture: WILLAMY IMAGES

Important The Dimboola project has included the introduction of a newly styled one-on-one junior academy program and an intense focus on cherishing club participants and members. “It’s something we’re really focussing on. It doesn’t matter if you are a paid player or a kid playing in the under-12s. Everyone is important in our club. We have learnt the hard way that we have to be like that,” Mr Pyers said. “We can’t take for granted that people will support us.” The Roos played in the finals last year and Farr’s appointment provided recruiting momentum that added Matt Everett and Ashley Clugston back into the fold. Former Horsham players Andrew Seers and Josh Rentsch are also on

the list and follower Justin Chilver looms as a major pick-up. Josh Cook is likely to be back from injury and Farr hopes to be back playing in the

last third of the season Mr Pyers: “It’s good to be the talk at the moment but we’d like to be the talk in October.”

Red-hot Gift on cards T

he national athletics spotlight will slip over the Wimmera this weekend for what looms as one of the hottest Stawell Gift fields in years.

events, relatively new to the Gift program, have had a 33 percent increase in entries.

The Stawell Gift represents the season finale to the Victorian athletic season which has involved 29 carnivals across the state.

Speculation has always followed backmarkers in the famous footrace at Central Park but this year there is particular interest in the fastest men entered in the carnival.

Events apart from the 120-metre sprints, particularly middle and long-distance races, have also become an integral part of the carnival.

Jamaican and former 100-metre world record holder Asafa Powell, with a personal best 100-metre time of 9.72 seconds, will predictably wear the red scratch-marker colours and attempt to become the third runner in history to succeed from the mark.

Perennial favourite Tamsyn Manou nee Lewis, among popular athletes taking on the longer distances, will run for the final time at Central Park after competing in the carnival since 1994. Fellow Australian athletics star Craig Mottram, 2005 world championship bronze medallist, will also return to Stawell this weekend for the Herb Hedemann Invitation 1600 metres.

Two-time winner Joshua Ross, 32, meanwhile, who won from seven metres in 2003 and impressively from scratch in 2007, will start only one metre in front Powell, a victim of his outstanding lead-up. Matthew Wiltshire will be back to defend his title running off 5.5 metres and well back from his eight metres of last year. Other previous winners back to run on the grass in front a weekend crowd expected to swell well into the thousands include Mitchell-WilliamsSwain, Sam Jamieson, Aaron Stubbs and, remarkably, Rodney Matthews who is one of oldest runners in the field of

150 at 44. This year’s Gift features a significant change to handicap rules with an extension of a front mark from 10 to 12 metres.

This year’s Gift has one of the biggest entries of the last decade with sprint events alone having a 13 percent increase from last year. McDonald’s Little Athletics

The 2013 Australia Post Stawell Gift carnival starts tomorrow night with a Calcutta and continues with three days of racing before culminating with the Gift final on Easter Monday. Stawell Gift backmarkers: Asafa Powell, scratch; Joshua Ross, 1m; Bola Lawal, 3.5; Matt Carter, 4; Mitchell Williams-Swain, 4.5; Khan Marr, 5.25; Aaron Stubbs, 5.25; Gary Finegan, 5.5; Matthew Wiltshire, 5.5; Dwane Beckles, 5.75.

Sail back after Easter Horsham Sailing Club will resume competition racing on April 7 after having a break for Easter.

The club will be searching for ideal sailing weather after sailors attempted to take on blowy conditions at Green Lake last weekend. To a sailor, perfect conditions involve wind around the 25 kph mark without heavy gusts, conditions sailors occasionally experience on Green Lake. But last Sunday conditions involved a base-load wind speed of 35 kph with gusts

Three boats ventured out to tackle a usual triangular course and David Wright on Fireball skiff pulled out after capsizing. But the two Paper Tiger catamarans kept at it - Anthony Schellens and Rick Walker – with Anthony narrowly in the lead after almost completing the first triangle. Then, just as Walker was passing him, Schellens’ boat stopped dead in the water as the craft collapsed in the conditions in spectacular fashion.

Subaru’s NY tease for next WRX S

ubaru appears poised to preview its eagerly awaited new WRX at the New York motor show after announcing plans to premiere a mystery ‘performance concept car’.

Details are scarce, but GoAuto understands the concept will likely give us our best look yet at what to expect from the third-generation Rex due on sale in 2014.

In a wider discussion on hybrid cars, prompted by news that Subaru’s US subsidiary plans to branch out into this area, Mr Senior said a similar time would come for Australia, but that it is not here yet.

AROUND THE BEND: The Subaru XV hybrid seen here will bow in New York, but it’s the likely appearance of a WRX concept – possibly resembling the previous recent concept show on the front page – that is creating real buzz.

“The timeline for it to be introduced into Australia has not even been discussed, indeed there are no plans for it to be introduced,” Mr Senior said. “There’s not a huge line of people waiting outside dealerships looking to buy hybrids, whether it’s Subaru, Toyota or any other company in Australia, so I think we have to be realistic and take hybrids one step at a time, to use a cliché,” he said.

The Japanese car-maker has already confirmed the next WRX will be styled differently to the regular Impreza, even though it will continue to share the same basic platform. It is unclear if the New York concept will preview the mechanicals, or just the styling.

Focus “The focus needs to be on what people want now rather than what they’re talking about down the track.

Smaller engine The next WRX is expected to move to a smaller displacement turbo-petrol engine, possibly a 2.0-litre as opposed to the current model’s 2.5-litre Boxer unit. Naturally, power will continue to be sent to all four wheels. However, the next-generation model could also feasibly go in a more radical direction by taking a leaf from the Subaru Viziv concept shown in Geneva this month, which supplemented an internal combustion engine with electric motors. GoAuto understands the new Rex

will make its production debut at the Tokyo motor show in November this year. Meanwhile, the ‘performance concept’ will be joined in New York by Subaru’s first production hybrid – a petrol-electric XV crossover pitched squarely at the North American market. The XV Crosstrek hybrid matches a combined internal combustion/electric powertrain to the company’s signature all-wheel-drive system, much

like the car-maker’s first attempt at a petrol-electric car – the non-production Hybrid Tourer Concept from 2009. But don’t expect to see it on sale in Australia any time soon, as Subaru has no plans at this stage to bring the car here. In an interview with GoAuto before the XV hybrid was revealed, Subaru Australia managing director Nick Senior said petrol-electric or dieselelectric cars were not a priority here

over the next few years. In the case of the XV, Mr Senior said he would prefer to see diesel and quicker turbo-petrol engines added to the range, stating that ‘our future is SUVs and performance vehicles’. Mr Senior said the larger turbo Forester XT was a popular and unique choice, and that he has lobbied for a conceptually similar XV variant. As both a crossover SUV and a performance car, such a vehicle would appear to be a natural fit.

“We have, as the rest of the industry has, has made significant inroads in reducing emissions, reducing fuel consumption and the cars that we are bringing in today at competitive market pricing – we are just not seeing that demand for hybrids. “Don’t say its not going to happen, because it will happen. But it is probably happening later than most people originally envisaged.” Mike Costello © GoAutoMedia, 2013

Kuga to pounce F

ord’s all-new Kuga will provide the Blue Oval with better ammunition in the booming compact SUV segment when it goes on sale in May priced from $27,990 plus on-road costs.

The furore over rorting the temporary skilled work visa scheme could worsen the shortage of trained mechanics in this country, the Australian Motor Industry Federation has warned. AMIF chief executive Richard Dudley said proposed caps on the number of 457 visas issued could result in ‘Australia’s reliance on road transport grinding to a halt in regional and rural areas’.

Kicking off the range is the two-wheel drive manual Ambiente, pitched to steal sales from rivals the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4 and Mitsubishi Outlander. But the Spanish-built Kuga is still priced slightly higher than Asian rivals like the Honda CR-V, which retails for $27,490 in base VTi form, while the popular Mazda CX-5 is $27,880 in frontwheel-drive Maxx guise.

Car industry ‘needs’ foreign workers

PROWLING KUGA: Ford has added an entry-level Ambiente variant to its 2013 Kuga range that will kick off from $27,990.

The Ambiente will be the only FWD Kuga and the only variant offered with a manual gearbox, as the rest of the range is fitted with Ford’s ‘intelligent’ all-wheel drive system and automatic transmissions. Manual Ambiente variants are powered by a 110kW/240Nm 1.6-litre fourcylinder EcoBoost petrol engine, but a more powerful 134kW/240Nm version of the

same engine is fitted to allwheel drive automatic variants.

models are $44,740 in petrol guise or $47,740 for the diesel.

The AWD Ambiente comes with a six-speed torque-converter automatic transmission and costs $31,490, while moving up to the mid-spec Trend costs $36,240.

The pricing marks a saving of $2750 over the outgoing Kuga Trend that retails for $38,990, while the petrol Titanium is $250 less expensive than the equivalent outgoing model.

Adding an automatic transmission to the Ambiente costs $3500. Opting for a 120kW/340Nm 2.0-litre Duratorq turbo-diesel engine, matched with a sixspeed dual-clutch Powershift automatic transmission, ups the price to $39,240. Range-topping

Ford has not yet announced equipment levels for each Kuga variant, but confirmed the Trend and Titanium will be the first Fords in Australia to come with DAB+ digital radio.


Tim Nicholson © GoAutoMedia, 2013

Prime Minister Julia Gillard has described the 457 scheme as ‘riddled with rorts’, leading government, politicians and other commentators to call for a cap on the visas and to put Australians at the front of the jobs queue. However the AMIF says this is ‘a gross distortion of the facts and an emotive response to a valuable source of expertise’. The AMIF points to a survey by Auto Skills Australia that revealed a current shortage of 19,000 skilled mechanics. Mr Dudley said a lack of staff was cited as a reason behind the closure of several automotive businesses, and that according to the Department

SHORTAGE: Australia may be referred to as the land of plenty but that does not apply to skilled motor mechanics.

of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, only half of all advertised carrelated positions were filled. In an interview with GoAuto, Mr Dudley suggested the statistics only scratched the surface, as many jobs in the industry were never formally advertised, with employers relying on word of mouth. He said some positions only attracted one candidate, limiting choice and potentially forcing employers to take on staff unsuited to the company culture. “If we could find 19,000 skilled mechanics in the Australian-based workforce, we would employ them, but they

simply do not exist,” Mr Dudley said. “Rather than continue to generate some sort of employment class war and social concern, government should be working with all parts of industry together to better plan for a diminishing labour pool, impacts of globalisation and the needs of all Australians to access all the services they need.” Data from the Department of Immigration and Citizenship shows that 457 applications lodged by the mining industry dropped 15.2 percent last year.

Toyota set to reveal new Kluger T

oyota will reveal the thirdgeneration of its popular Kluger SUV at the New York auto show before it goes on sale in Australia in the first half of next year.

August 2007 but was given a major facelift in late 2010.

FAMILY FRIENDLY: The current Toyota Kluger has been a sales hit, and a new-generation one is imminent.

The second-generation Kluger was a major departure from the original version that Toyota launched in 2003, moving from a smaller boxy shape to the larger, more stylish version that quickly became a family favourite in Australia.

A Toyota spokesman confirmed that Australian-spec Klugers would be built at Toyota’s Princeton, Indiana plant in the US rather than Japan where the current model is sourced. The announcement that it will show the Kluger, sold in the US as the Highlander, comes after a busy period for the Japanese car-maker, which earlier this year released the smaller RAV4 and late last year launched the top-selling Corolla hatch. Also on the launch radar are the 86 cabriolet – premiered in concept form this month and expected to hit production this year – and the new Corolla sedan, due in late 2013 or early 2014.

Although sales for the Kluger are down by 4.6 percent this year, it is still the third best-selling large SUV in Australia with 989 units, trailing its Prado stablemate that recorded 1238 sales, while Ford’s locally built Territory leads the pack on 1316 sales so far this year. While no technical or specification details have been released, it is expected that the 2014 Kluger will continue with Toyota’s current sharper, more angular design language that is slowly making its way onto all mod-

els from the Yaris to the Camry. It is also unclear what drivetrains will appear in the next-gen Kluger, however there has been speculation that Toyota Australia will continue with its petrol-only policy.

Diesel ix35 Czechs in Hyundai Australia has added its potent 135kW diesel engine to the ix35 SE, cutting the entry price for an oil-burner in the compact crossover’s range by $2600.

Previously, the cheapest diesel in the ix35 line-up was the mid-spec Elite that retails for $37,590, but the addition of the SE – Special Edition – diesel brings it down to $34,990. In January, the South Korean car-maker introduced the Czech-built SE in front-wheel drive petrol guise for $29,990, slotting in between the entrylevel Active on which it is based and the Elite. Coming standard with allwheel drive, the ix35 SE is powered by Hyundai’s R-series CRDi turbo diesel that produces 135kW of power and 392Nm of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Features that differentiate the SE from the Korean-sourced

variants include a unique front bumper with fog lamps, automatic projector headlights, power folding side mirrors, rear privacy glass and 17-inch alloy wheels. The SE cabin gets some additional goodies such as a cooled glove box, heated seats front and rear and leather/ leatherette upholstery including leather trim for the steering wheel and gearshift knob. The ix35 comes with a fivestar ANCAP safety rating and

standard safety features include a reversing camera display in the interior mirror, six airbags, hill start assist, and downhill brake control. Hyundai’s Australian arm announced in January that it would source the ix35 SE from the Czech Republic because of favourable exchange rates and to help alleviate supply constraints out of South Korea.

Expect a hybrid version to be offered in markets such as the US. It is unclear, however, if a petrol-electric version could make it to Australia.

New York is shaping up to be an SUV-centric show, with Range Rover announcing that it will reveal its allnew Sport and Infiniti set to unveil a hybrid version of its QX60 crossover.

In Australia, the current generation Kluger has been on the market since

Pirelli: Run-flats ‘not for cheap cars’ Run-flat technology is still too expensive for cheaper cars, despite it reaching a turning point worldwide, tyre maker Pirelli says. Pirelli Australia deputy managing director Cesar Alarcon said the tyres that allowed a driver to keep rolling despite getting a puncture were still a long way from becoming an affordable option on cheap family fare, including the Holden Commodore, Ford Falcon and Toyota Aurion. “I don’t see it happening anytime soon,” Mr Alarcon said. “The fact that it weighs more means it costs more as well. “Clearly we cannot expect run-flats to go on a cheap car because it would not proportionately justify the price. “It’s a matter of complication as well, because if you don’t have the room in the boot to fit a tyre, then you need to fit a run-flat tyre – you can’t go without a spare,” he said.

DEFLATED: Pirelli Australia says run-flat technology will continue to be too expensive to make it into mainstream cars..

According to Mr Alarcon, the premium end of the tyre market in Australia was considered as any wheel size above 17 inches in diameter. This market had grown by nine percent in Australia last year, he said.

up to 300km, depending on the brand. However, unlike a conventional tyre, run-flats cannot be fixed and need to be replaced – often costing up to 20 percent more than a conventional tyre.

Run-flat tyres contain specially strengthened sidewalls that can take the weight of a car even when the tread is punctured, allowing the car to drive to its destination.

The new-tyre market in Australia was worth $5-billion last year, according to data released by economics research group IBISWorld.
