The winter chill B rrrrr…and you thought you were cold! Imagine how hard it is to get up in the morning if you’re a car battery. Not being used for long periods (even overnight) plus plunging temperatures as winter deepens can put serious strain on your battery. From air-conditioning and alarm systems to the much-loved GPS and built-in DVD players, the accessories fitted to contemporary cars can also drain battery power. RACT Batteries uses an advanced testing system to determine the health of your battery – it may save you from having to replace it prematurely. We can also determine which battery is best suited for your vehicle, saving you the hassle of a DIY project. If the worst happens, RACT Batteries will get you going, normally within an hour, with a mobile 24/7 service to make life easier. For a full list of stockists and further information, please call RACT Batteries on 13 11 11. “Hearing loss should eated early” – leading preventative health specialist Medical research has proven that early intervention assists the treatment of hearing loss and lets patients enjoy life to the full.

Sadly, our state’s best-known creature has an uncertain future if the deadly Devil Facial Tumour Disease isn’t stopped in its tracks. Researchers are desperate to find a cure and they’re slowly getting closer, thanks to the support of the Devils in Danger Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation established to increase community awareness, raise funds for continued research and instigate projects such as a sustainable disease-free captive breeding program. The foundation’s next major initiative is to establish the Devil Awareness, Research and Conservation Centre, the first centre of its kind in the world to sustainably breed disease-free Tasmanian devils. The aim is to maintain and preserve the genetics available in the captive population of devils, making a major contribution to the prevention of the extinction of the species. Tasplates is playing a role in support of this project, making a donation of $40 from the sale of every set of special edition Tassie devil plates.
