LETTER | Never-ending cycle

SIR, – The government won’t legislate because it wants industry to self-regulate. Industry won’t self-regulate because it wants government to legislate. The government wants to save money by cutting the budgets of regulators. J. McInerney Horsham The entire December 12, 2018 edition of The Weekly Advertiser is available online. READ IT HERE!

LETTER | Answers needed

SIR, – Can someone please tell me why I’m paying $1.56 a litre for unleaded petrol in Horsham and $1.15 a litre from a station in Melbourne? I understand there will always be a few cents difference between centres, but a 41-cent difference between the country and city makes no sense at all. Could Member […]

LETTER | Well said on ‘rail waste’

SIR, – In response to Peter Janetzki’s letter in The Weekly Advertiser, November 21, about ‘Rail Waste’ I say well done! I agree that a two-car velocity passenger train should operate in the Wimmera – for a start from Dimboola, the original depot – to Ararat and stabled in a holding yard for a return […]

LETTER | Stand Up To Violence

SIR, – It was great to see men leading the 2018 Horsham White Ribbon march.   I read with interest Bernard Quince’s letter in The Weekly Advertiser and agree there is a need to educate boys and to teach them that not only is dad’s violence wrong but that any violence against women is wrong.  Leaders […]

LETTER: Impressed by Sarah De Santis

SIR, – As the only candidate for the state election in attendance at Stawell and Ararat agricultural shows last weekend I was impressed with Sarah De Santis Labor candidate for Ripon’s stall. She and her team, instead of environmentally unfriendly balloons, were giving away eco-friendly pinwheels made from FSC certified materials – fully recyclable and […]

LETTER: Halloween humour

SIR, – It is October. Football conversations have dropped and complaints about Halloween have started. The eve of All Hallow is associated with gaudy orange and black decorations, which spring to life and make the most unrealistic cackles. Every year my good wife decorates her house and I marvel at the latest plastic gadget, which […]

LETTER: Gary Bird: Work done on sports precinct

Former Horsham mayor Gary Bird has urged the city’s community leaders to be conscious of their potential to ‘waste time, effort and money’ by ‘going over old ground’. Mr Bird, a Horsham councillor for about 10 years and mayor in 2006 and 2007, said it was with a sense of frustration that he followed latest […]

LETTER: Precious resource

SIR, – I thank you for your ‘Water our liquid gold’ editorial, October 3, a timely reminder to save this precious environmental resource, which we take for granted and fail to respect.  I’ll take this opportunity to share practical thoughts on water and the environment. Other than a shortage of water, the greatest threat to […]
