to see that! A beautiful day where I

am. Remember yesterday I said I

would love to come and find a small

business to broadcast from and

business to broadcast from and what would be better is an entire street

that signed up to the small business

family. Well we have gone one

better. We found an entire town that

signed on to Sunrise small business

program, it is Murrarundi, a magical

little town, in the upper Hunter, on

the New England highway, between

Scone and Tamworth, the town is

built on small business. Not a

single skyscraper, all Coles and

woollies, all famz. So we will meet

the intown and find out how

important small business is to the

town. A beautiful day here, not a

cloud in the sky, now let's look around the country.

Now, guys, throughout the morning I

am going to be introducing you to

the residents of Murrurundi. A real

leaf change kind of town. A lot of

people from the city have moved to

the country. A very artistic town, a

few galleries, plenty of small

businesses and just a magical place

to come and visit. I will introduce

you to Murrurundi today. Sounds

gorgeous. See Coming up - the first three winners in the Cash Cow. Your name could be drawn at 6:30. Then, we have a major winner at 7:10. But straight ahead, Kochie's early morning finance report. And did Tiger Woods make one of his lovers pregnant?

It's a principle we've applied to our health cover to make it easier to understand and easier to use. Here's what I'm talking about. you know it's going to cost around about, say, 200 bucks. Now, even on NIB's most basic cover, you'll get $100 of that back. 50%. VOICE: Whoo-hoo!

No guessing, no swipe-and-hope. Half - it's that simple.

In finance news - Wall Street is closed today for the President's Day holiday.

applied to be a member of

applied to be a member of the European Union. Every

Every time the consumer price index

comes outside, we look at the

quarter per cent increase, and go,

quarter per cent increase, and go,s

might fly, my inflation rate is

higher but the Bureau of Statistics

hahas broken inflation rates down

for different types of people and

different types of circumstances. For more we're joined by Craig James from CommSec joins us now. Good morning.

Craig, how does inflation impact on different people?

The big winners in the December

quarter are people without a

mortgage. Young people without a

mortgage. Those people who have paid

off their homes. People in their 50.

They were paying a lower rate of

inflation than what we were

generally paying. But those people

paying higher, those people who had

a mortgage because interest rates

are going up and

are going up and interest rate

charges are reflected in the CPI.

The actual rate of inflation was

half of 1 per cent but for

half of 1 per cent but for employees it was 7 10ths of one per cent, a

fair bit higher. What we have got to

do with the things is look at them

over time. If you look at somebody

with a mortgage, the employee

households, the inflation rat for the last the last year was 0.

the last year was 0.Fore 4 per cent.

For self funded retirees and

pensioners, it was a lot higher 3. pensioners, it was a lot higher

per cent compared to everyone, 2. pensioners, it was a lot higher 3.2 per cent compared to everyone,

per cent compared to everyone, 2.1 per cent. Is it shows the things

work out over time. Do they work

themselves out over time? A lot of

pensioners say to me our pension is

tied to CPI but we suffer a much

greatnerflation rate because we

don't get the benefit of the big

fall in car prices and television

sets because we stick with the ones

we have got? Well the thing is over

time prices go up and down, and we

know that with mortgages, they go up

and down over time as interest

ratess change but the Bureau of

Statistics looked back since 1988

when it started compling the indices

and it shows the different groups

have had the same rate of inflation

over time. So swings and round

abouts over time, thank you. Thank you. The Sunrise Showbiz Report brought to you by 'New Idea'. For all the latest celebrity news and more. Tiger Woods is back in the bad books.

A 13-year-old boy has been charged with murder over the Brisbane schoolyard stabbing of Elliott Fletcher. The incident happened at St Patrick's College. The 13-year-old will appear in the Children's Court today.

Our Brisbane correspondent Michelle Tapper is at the school,

we'll check in with her after 7:00. Also being clicked online is Tony Abbott's plans to scrap penalty rates. The Opposition Leader says penalties should go to protect the Australian weekend. He believes shops will shut on Saturday and Sunday because the Rudd Government's new employment laws will push wages higher and make it too expensive for businesses to open. But how many Aussie families rely on penalty rates to make ends meet?

How many families one parent might

work Monday to Friday and one on the

weekend because of childcare

arrangements. There are a lot of

situations. It Allows you to do the

juggle. Penalty rates, some of my

scratchy ones. If they were soft it would be a different matter. With

alovera in them. The Allan Border Medal presentation is also a popular story on the web.

Shane Watson won the main award. But the photo galleries of the WAGS are pretty popular. Lara Bingle wore an all-white number from Michelle Jank. Jessica Bratich looked stunning in black. She's the girlfriend of Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson who was a favourite for the Allan Border Medal. But most commentary is about Hayley Bracken, the wife of Nathan Bracken. One website says "WAG's nude dress steals the night".

Another headlines says "Bracken does a Brynne" referring to the dress Brynne Gordon wore to the Brownlow Medal. We'll get reaction from Melbourne, when we check in with our correspondent Nuala Hafner. But tell us what you think.

Is that dress do it for you, Boys?

Yep. I could have guessed that. Is

that a statement dress? Something I

think you wear when you want to

ensure your photo is taken maybe. A

look at me dress? Yes. Maybe. It is

a bit Tarzan and Jane. It is

revealing. Some people moulgt think

I am jealous but I think it is on

the rude side. For an occasion like

that, let us know what you think.

Coming up - the website that gets young people to promote junk food. And the risks of having a genetic test through your health insurer. Next up, though, Tuesday's news and weather. And it's Cash Cow time. We'll name the first three winners right after this.

Now here's Nat with the news. Good morning. Facebook groups paying tribute to murdered Brisbane schoolboy Elliott Fletcher have been pulled from the website after attacking the 13-year-old alleged killer. Some sites have already been re-listed, illegally naming the classmate charged with stabbing the 12-year-old to death,

leaving students grief stricken. The alarm went and I just ran straight to the closest room. I just feel really sick about it, yeah. Other disturbing websites blame Elliot for the fight at St Patrick's College and others threaten the boy arrested over the attack.

He's been charged with murder overnight and will face Brisbane Children's Court this morning.

And a woman has been charged over a stabbing outside a Sydney primary school.

Police have only now revealed the incident. A 39-year-old woman was allegedly stabbed in the stomach

outside a Sefton primary school about 3:30 yesterday afternoon. A 29-year-old will face court today

charged with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. An 18-year-old man is expected to be charged over a high-speed pursuit through Melbourne after allegedly being caught street racing. Two Holden Commodores were spotted speeding along Old Geelong Road at Hoppers Crossing. Police gave chase with one of the cars reaching speeds of 180km/h on the Princes Freeway. The chase ended on Koroit Creek Road

and the unlicensed driver fled but was arrested nearby. Forensic police are examining the car, which was reported stolen. Police are still searching for the second car. An anti-whaling protester is being held by Japanese hunters after boarding one of their ships in the Southern Ocean. Shaky video released by the Sea Shepherd protest group apparently shows Kiwi activist Pete Bethune climbing aboard the 'Shonan Maru 2'. He hid on board then presented himself to the captain claiming he was there to make a citizens arrest and presented the whalers with a bill for $3 million to replace the 'Ady Gil' which sank after a high seas collision. The Japanese say he boarded illegally. A powerful cyclone is battering the Pacific Island nation of Tonga. Cyclone Renae has lashed the nation with winds of up to 160km/h, bringing down trees and powerlines. Homes are inundated with water and roads are flooded. Residents and tourists have been warned to stay inside

until the cyclone passes. So far, no reports of injuries. It's been revealed Austrian incest father Josef Fritzl has been writing letters to the daughter he locked up and raped for 24 years. Elisabeth Fritzl receives a letter every two weeks from her father begging for money so he can study to be a lawyer. The 43-year-old was locked in a dungeon when she was 18. Fritzl is serving a life sentence for rape, incest and imprisonment. Astronauts are one step closer to completing their mission at the International Space Station. The crew has successfully moved the new observation deck to its final position. Astronauts spent more than three hours trying to get the deck in position after several bolts kept falling out. And I know it was very exciting for everybody although it was a hard-fought victory, to be sure. The new $400 million room Tranquillity will provide unprecedented views of earth.

views, the Canadian Rockies. Looking

at the ceiling of Canada. Shane Watson has capped a golden summer by taking out the Allan Border Medal in Melbourne overnight. Watson upstaged Mitchell Johnson and Michael Clarke despite playing less Test matches during the voting period. The 28-year-old struggled to contain his emotions while accepting the award and was also named One-Day Player of the Year. Simon Katich was named Test Player of the Year. Melbourne midfielder Carlos Hernandez has taken out the A-League's highest honour - the Johnny Warren Medal. The Costa Rican international took the award ahead of last year's winner, Shane Smeltz. But the Gold Coast striker didn't go home empty-handed. Smeltz picked up the Golden Boot as leading goal scorer

for the second straight year. Victory mentor Ernie Merrick took out Coach of the Year. Anthony Mundine has attacked Danny Green for what he claims is an attempt to goad him into a rematch. Green challenged 'The Man' to an Anzac Day showdown last week with 10% of the fight purse to go to an Indigenous youth program. It looks like he's desperate. As far as using my Aboriginal people, that is the lowest of the low, you know what I mean?

and now we have a wholesale bakery

here in Murrurundi. I have seen these products in these products in Sydney, Melbourne,

I know they go as far as New

Zealand. Yes, and even Perth and

Brisbane, all over Australia. How

did the business start? A fantastic

story about oil from Italy? We

started nine years ago, a venture

with my wife, Kristy, whom I met

travelling in Australia. We came in

with extra virgin olive oil and

selling to the restaurants in

Sydney, oil being a major product of

Savary product, we got our hands

dirty and got it. Love the story,

come with a tonne of olive oil. Showers and widespread storms are generating over Queensland and New South Wales. Heavy rain with gale force winds are pushing over southern NSW.

Brisbane is buzzing this morning,

the view through the Jetstar sky

cam. A possible storm and a warm 30 today. Immigrants hoping to settle in Britain already have a long wait for the privilege.

But it seems the UK Government wants to make sure they've learned the lesson. The art of queuing could soon be included on the citizenship test. UK correspondent Richard Arnold joins us. Good morning. Why is the Government considering teaching immigrants to queue?

Well, it is an integral part of our

culture, Kochie. But it is new to

me, I don't think the British have

learned how to deal with queueing .

We do it in an orderly line but if

they want to do it in a British way,

do like 91 per cent of Brits who

reject to it is react something like

this and do nothing about it. It is

all the Brits do when we see someone

jumping a queue. We are lousy at

complaining. We make a decent brew

and be an expert at the world stage

in sport. You are great queueers and

I would be waiting on the train

station, minding my business and ten

people all p behind you in a

straight single line, amazing. It

has changed completely. But I

imagine the younger generation have

learned to form an orderly queue on

talent shows like 'X Factor'. I

think generally the government has

said, whilst queueing is a small

part of our culture, the

responsibility for our society

breaking down is the fact there is a

distinct lack of manners, so mind

our Ps and Qs, mind the pun. Another

story overnight, a web site pays

Opening batsman Shane Watson took out the presitious award. He was also named One-Day Player of the Year as our cricketers finally got a chance to celebrate another successful summer. Melbourne correspondent Nuala Hafner has all the details. Good morning.

Who were the other big winners on the night?

It must have been a night for the

openers, Simon Katich took out Test

Player of the Year and former player

and commentators Bill Lawry was

induct under to the hall of fame,

along with his '60s And Shelley

Nitchke won female player of the

year. We want to talk about what the

girls wore on the red carpet? I

thought you would never ask, now I

can get into it. Lara Bingle was

always going to grab a lot of

attention and did just that, in a

very contemporary Michelle Jank

white dress, she went for Chanel

fake bling. Her feains ai said she

was trying to copy him with fake

tattooed. Simple but gorgeous.

Mitchell Johnson's partner Jessica

Bratich looked stunning. Last year

there was the wardrobe malfunction

ruling in most of the country saying

she was wearing canary yellow

underwear but she showed cleavage.

And Hayley bracken? Every awards

ceremony, entertainment or sport,

there is the one dress, Elizabeth

hurly in the sequin number, this

year it was hailly and an inspired

mermaid dress she designed with

truteejically placed lace, her mum

put on. On behalf of the cameramen,

I say thank you. Yes, they gathered

around the monitor here. They didn't

do it when they saw Shane Watson.

Nice mum helped with the dress.

Nice mum helped with the dress. What do you think, now you have seen it

again? Well, no, it was good. What

would I know though? Our Aussie Olympians have received a massive morale boost. 25-year-old Dale Begg-Smith performed beautifully to take out a silver medal in the moguls. Beretts is in Canada and is across all the Olympic action. Beretts, what a special moment for our team.

Yes, it really was. I spoke to team

management this morning. Everyone is

on high. Such an important thing for

team at a games to get the first

medal tonne. To have Dale Begg-Smith

go that early in the aump condition.

He was that close to gold. Just a

few weeks go, he had knee

reconstruction, the defending gold

medallist from tureneoy and he has

picked up silver. A remarkable

effort that should be applauded.

Incredible and great

Incredible and great to see a gold

and silver. Not inbest event for

get your knees to work like that.

Right across Australia, this is

Sunrise on seven. From Brekky

Central, here is Kochie and Mel. And shortly, the Cash Cow gives away $15,000 in one hit. Right now, it's news time. Here's Nat. Good morning. A Brisbane private school will re-open this morning after a knife fight left a 12-year-old dead and a 13-year-old behind bars. Classmates are being offered counselling

after Elliott Fletcher was stabbed in the chest at St Patrick's College yesterday morning. A 13-year-old boy has been charged with murder overnight

and is due to face court later today. And we'll cross to our Brisbane correspondent Michelle Tapper

outside St Patrick's, shortly. Queensland roof insulator Countrywide has now been suspended

after criticism Peter Garrett failed to act after the death of Matthew Fuller. The 26-year-old was killed and his girlfriend seriously burned just weeks after the company was accredited under the Rudd Government's rebate scheme. It's now been reported Countrywide was first denied accreditation

because it had no experience but then approved after a phone call to the Environment Department. Environment Minister Peter Garrett yesterday came under attack for not attending an emergency meeting of electricians in Canberra. AFL footballer Andrew Lovett is preparing to challenge his suspension

despite being charged with raping a woman on Christmas Eve. The recent St Kilda recruit has been suspended indefinitely after police yesterday finalised their 2-month investigation. Lovett is accused of assaulting the woman in her sleep at a Port Melbourne apartment. I understand and appreciate the interest in this. However, the club has made a statement in relation to Andrew Lovett. He'll face court on Friday

but is appealing his suspension from playing with the AFL grievance tribunal. It looks to be slow going on Sydney's M4 motorway after tolls on the busy artery were finally removed overnight after years of promises.

Traffic is crawling through the tolling station even though the boom gates and the money collectors are gone. At midnight the toll on the motorway was done away with and crews moved in to start dismantling the booths and barriers. And there could be a few traffic problems on Victoria Road at Gladesville after a burst water main sent a torrent of water across the road.

At least 18 people are dead and authorities expect the death toll to rise after two passengers trains collided outside the Belgian capital, Brussels. The engines collided on snow-covered tracks during morning peak hour trapping dozens of passengers. Rescue crews are still combing through the wreckage for survivors. Basically, we hit one of the carriages and the cables from up above, they came on to our train. Around 125 people have been injured. An investigation is under way to work out how the two trains ended up on the same stretch of line. The wives and girlfriends of Australia's cricket team have taken centre stage at the Alan Border Medal in Melbourne overnight. Nathan Bracken's wife, Hayley, stole the limelight for her own creation. I wanted it to look like, um, the ocean and, um, the rainforest. Black is back for all-rounder Shane Watson and fiance Lee Furlong. While Michael Clarke and Lara Bingle proved they're still cricket's glamour couple. In finance news -

I could just see the rain forest there. Wall Street is closed today for the President's Day holiday. Time for sport and Beretts is in Canada for the Winter Olympics.

A beautiful day. It is a gorgeous

day. How about this view? Out across

the slope here at Black Comb and Whistler. Shane Watson's remarkable summer has risen to new heights overnight with the reborn all-rounder awarded the Allan Border Medal in Melbourne. The 28-year-old choked back tears after accepting the coveted award. It's been an awesome ride and it's very overwhelming actually to receive this award. Watson also took out One-Day Player of the Year with opening partner Simon Katich winning Test Player of the Year. Melbourne midfielder Carlos Hernandez has been judged the A-League's best player, taking out the Johnny Warren Medal in Sydney overnight. Victory mentor Ernie Merrick was named Coach of the Year while prolific Gold Coast striker Shane Smeltz picked up the Golden Boot for he league's leading scorer.

Archie Thompson won Goal of the Year for a stunning strike in Round 16 against Gold Coast. Alex Pullin is leading the Aussie charge in the snowboarding cross at the Winter Olympics this morning. The 22-year-old currently has the fastest qualifying time putting him in the box seat to progress to the next stage of the competition. Fellow Aussie Damon Hayler is also looking good.

He's holding the eighth fastest time. The blue riband downhill event is also in progress and some competitors are having trouble staying upright. Craig Branch and Jono Brauer are flying the Aussie flag.

Craig bafrn not too far away,

conditions are good here. Newcastle fans are breathing a sigh of relief after Kurt Gidley was cleared of a serious knee injury following the NRL's All Star game. Scans revealed a torn hamstring for the Knights captain. Good news for Brisbane as well with confirmation Darren Lockyer's arm injury is only minor.

Last Friday the topics we put to Kevin Rudd ended up all over the news. So here's your chance to ask him a question. Just head to our website and contact us. As you heard in the news, a 12-year-old boy has died after being stabbed during a fight in a Brisbane schoolyard. Police allege the knife was wielded by a 13-year-old fellow student. Our Brisbane correspondent Michelle Tapper is outside the school, St Patrick's College at Shorncliffe. Michelle, what's the latest on this tragedy?

Good morning. Well, it is incredibly

sad. The entire community here sad. The entire community here at St Patrick's College is in mourning

today after the tragic death of

12-year-old Elliott Fletcher

yesterday. Now young Elliott was

stabbed in the chest before school

started with what is believed to be

an 18 cm fishing knife. Paramedics

worked on Elliott at the scene and

rushed to the Children's Hospital

but he died add noon yesterday. His

accused attacker is a 13-year-old

student from the same school, found

midmorning in a nearby street with

self inflicted stab wound to the

neck. Police took him to the

hospital and the wound were deemed

superphyllous so they questioned him

all -- deemed superficial and

yesterday he was charged with murder

after questioning. He will face

court this morning after being

behind bars last night. It is sad,

particularly for the other children

who witnessed this. Hot is the

reaction of 24 school? The school

reaction of 24 school? The school is

quick to sppd. They were in lock

down yesterday for three hours until

police deemed it was safe and they

could return to class. Many students

went home to deal with it.

Attendance today isaual and grief

counselling is being offered. Here

is a look what the prince pal

Michael Car areoll said. My

immediately concern is the welfare

of the students and staff. You think

they will be safe but in the

playground they can get stabbed. I

think it is terrible, the fright of

everyone's life. My age, your age, a

knife is just an awful thing. I

don't know why. You send them to

good schools, it is not a reflection

of the school, it is a reflection on

society. I just feel sick about it.

It is such a reflection on society,

the second school stabbing in the

last two weeks, what are authorities

going to do? This is the second

violent stabbing at a Brisbane

school. The other event wads on

February 15 at St Joseph's College.

He was stabbed in the leg

He was stabbed in the leg after refusing to hand over his

possessions to a student from a

nearby school. The premier weighed

into the debate saying she was

shocked and saddened by Elliott's

tragic death and a full

investigation will be launched

investigation will be launched but she said we are lucky here in

Queensland to have relatively lucky

schools but it is little consolation

to the staff and parents and

students here. Now here's Kochie. In an Australian first, private health insurer NIB is offering customers cut-price personalised genetic tests. The tests help assess the customer's genetic risk of getting preventable illnesses such as diabetes, heart attacks and some cancers. However, experts have warned that taking up the company's offer could lead to serious privacy and financial risks. So should people take the test? I'm joined by Sunrise GP Dr Ginni Mansberg and civil libertarian, Stephen Blanks. Good morning. Ginni, what can these tests show?

They are taking a bit of your

saliva, off to the post in America

and they show if row have certain

genes from celiac's disease and

obesity and send you back the

information. It is reliable? Yes,

the tests are pretty good for those

jeans but you need to put it in

perspective what they are testing

for. Finding out jow a gene in the

system doesn't mean you are standing

looking at the barrel of a gun for

it to hit you. There are a number of

things that have to happen to

convert the gene. There are so many

we can't test for. They are

we can't test for. They are saying it is an early warning sign. Is it

It can be once you interplay with

the environmental and lifestyle

factors, when you put them

factors, when you put them together

it increases your risk but not

everybody who was living in

Chernoble get cancer and even with

with the breast cancer gene gets

breast cancer. It is not a target on

your head. The great fear with the

test is once you are told you have a

genetic disposition to some sort of

illness or cancer it could affect

your health insurance coverage or

your life insurance coverage.

Particularly life insurance, there

are legal obligations you have to

inform your insureer ofpler risks

and the insureer,

and the insureer, under Australian

law can refuse you cover or increase

your premiums. People New Zealand to

understand if you saep the offer,

there have been secondary. The

problem is they are not being fully

informed of the legal obligations

and risks to them. The law hasn't

real a caught up yet with all the

consequences of this sort of idea.

Because you are going into intest as

little blind. You think it is a good

idea. Gee, if I get an early warning

that is terrific but if you get

information you don't like, and is

going to affect you in the future

you have to spill the beans and tell

them? Yes, and the Medical Journal

of Australia did a survey last year

involving a number of people

undergoing genetic tests. When the

people were informed of the legal

consequences of receiving the

information, half of the volunteers

with drew from the program. Thank

you, good advice. Back to Mel. If you've just tuned in Beretts has been having breakfast with Princess Mary and Prince Frederik in Whistler. It's such a pretty spot and it looks like it's absolutely buzzing. But apart from the competition, what else is on offer for the spectators?

It is a enormous, keep an eye out

gorgeous spot and you see an hour or

few times on the way down. The great

thing is the world is here at the

Facebook groups paying tribute to murdered Brisbane schoolboy Elliott Fletcher have been pulled from the website after attacking the 13-year-old alleged killer. Some sites have been re-listed, illegally naming the teen charged with murder. St Patrick's College will re-open today after classmates were left grief-stricken. The alarm went and I just ran straight to the closest room. I just feel really sick about it, yeah. Other disturbing websites blame Elliot for the fight at St Patrick's College and others threaten the boy arrested over the attack. He's been charged with murder overnight and will face Brisbane Children's Court this morning. Police say an unlicensed Melbourne teenager will be charged with a string of offences after a high-speed pursuit overnight. Two Holden Commodores were spotted street racing along Old Geelong Road at Hoppers Crossing. Police gave chase with one of the cars reaching speeds of 180km/h on the Princes Freeway. The chase ended at Laverton and the 18-year-old driver fled but was arrested nearby. Forensic police are examining the car which was reported stolen. Police are still searching for the second car. Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says weekend penalty rates should be scrapped to protect weekend trading. He says many businesses won't open on Saturdays and Sundays because of the extra costs, leaving Australia's business laws languishing 40 years in the past. Mr Abbott denies the no-penalties policy is a step towards re-instating WorkChoices, saying the Howard government he was part of went too far. Melbourne's Frankston City Council has voted to spend $250,000 hiring its own pseudo police force. Eight private security guards will roam the council area to clean up the city's image. But police deny they're needed. They are not trained They are not equipped to do the work we do. We are here to respond to those situations as and when required. The Frankston Mayor claims local police have been short 100 officers for 18 months. The father of the Olympics luger who died during a training run has told how his son feared the curve which took his life. The Georgian Olympian phoned his father saying he was a
