LETTER: Speedy Ararat train service

SIR, – We have become enthusiastic and regular users of the passenger train between Ararat, Ballarat and Melbourne, these past 10 years. Contrary to Member for Ripon Louise Staley, we have found the service comfortable and speedy, delivering us right into the heart of Melbourne.  We can recall only a few times when the service […]

LETTER | Vegan perspective

Disruptive protests in the name of veganism across the country have prompted various levels of outrage and condemnation. The Weekly Advertiser joined a chorus of criticism of the tactics activists have been using. But as the dust settles and with clearer and calmer heads at the debating table, what is it all about? Amy Carpenter […]

LETTER | Grant to aid Wimmera River Discovery Trail

SIR, – I would like to acknowledge the recent grant funding by the Commonwealth towards the Wimmera River Discovery Trail.

The support of The Weekly Advertiser in promoting this initiative is […]

LETTER | Exciting developments

SIR, – As we get closer to Easter, it’s an opportune time to provide an update from Northern Grampians Shire Council, as there has been plenty of great things happening within our community. The Easter holiday period is obviously a busy time for our region, so it was fantastic to be able to work with […]

LETTER | Be a role model, not a bully

SIR, – Everyone is talking about stopping bullying of individuals, especially of children.  How about stopping community bullying, where one person is bullied by the majority of the town they live in? Bullying of adults, as well as children, is just not acceptable behaviour.  The question is if adults are bullying another adult, what chance […]

LETTER | Digging their own hole

  SIR, – There were two stories in The Weekly Advertiser of February 6 that deserve a response.

Good question because there has been no public consultation by way of its Environmental Consultation Group since May […]

LETTER: Congratulations to VCE students

SIR – Congratulations to all those who have received their Victorian Certificate of Education and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning results.

LETTER | Festive wishes

SIR, – On Christmas night angels appeared in the sky with a message of ‘peace on earth, and good will to all men and women.’ A new life, a baby had just been born in a country that was under foreign occupation by a totalitarian government. The promise of peace resonated with those who longed […]
