Goulburn Valley Health chief executive Trevor Saunders has praised emergency services and hospital staff for their response to the tragic accident at Ardmona last week.

Efforts praised

- Trevor Saunders, GV Health chief executive

The mini-bus accident that occurred on Tuesday, June 20, was a tragic accident and our thoughts are with the people affected.

I would like to thank the emergency services who attended the scene and compassionately cared for those involved.

I would also like to thank all the GV Health staff, volunteers and contractors for their tremendous effort to provide well co-ordinated, high quality care for all our patients and their families.

I am grateful to the emergency response team for their swift and efficient management of the situation.

Draw a line

- Jiri Kolenaty, Rushworth

We are selling our assets and natural treasures to foreign countries and business cartels, so that we can enjoy the easy way of life we have become accustomed to.

At the same time we are bringing in skilled and unskilled workers, as well as professionals, so that we don’t have to work or study hard.

Our education facilities are good and people from other countries are coming here to study.

But we are lacking ambition to learn, because we are relatively well off and the pressure we are being subjected to is not quite as strong as in other countries.

Australia is a continent rich with natural treasures but, in spite of it, our foreign and private debts have become staggeringly high.

Don’t get me wrong, I too like the easy way of life, but we have to draw a line somewhere.

Otherwise we will lose our freedom and become dependent on other countries.
