Quote of the Day:

"Far too many times I discover that certain individuals and even groups of people behave in such a manner that police have to intervene. This is highly unacceptable and the streets and town is for everyone, not just these few that feel they can behave as they please." - Senior Sergeant Damian Ferrari, on the police crackdown on alcohol abuse and bad behaviour in Ararat. See Friday's Ararat Advertiser for full story.
