Support local artists I recently read Whispers from the Gallery by Dianne Dempsey, Bendigo Weekly, April 6. It was, in short, a fairly scathing review of the current exhibition policies of the Bendigo Art Gallery under the direction of Karen Quinlan. On one hand Ms...

A change of culture Thank you for the editorial under the title “Peace at all costs” (Bendigo Weekly, April 27). You rightly emphasise “… how important sustainable peace really is. The enormous wasteful cost of war in human lives lost and scarred, in misspent...

Problems not hard to fix The Labor Party proposal noted in your news article, to clamp down on dodgy directors not paying superannuation and entitlements, is great. Like most other political initiatives it won’t change anything though. It certainly won’t deal with the...
