Replacing the private long-distance bus terminal would cost ratepayers

Todd Niall Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi Neighbours, If the long-distance bus terminal moves out of Sky City's complex, ratepayers will probably foot the bill. Ngāti Whātua opposes AT's plan to put it on their land. See below what it would look like, but should it stay where it is ?

Deceased cat

Annabel from Remuera

Hi all, unfortunately I have just seen a deceased ginger and white fluffy cat outside Ascot Hospital in Greenlane. I didn't get to see if the cat had a collar on but if you're missing a furry friend he/she is located outside the main MercyAscot sign on the corner of Ascot Ave/Greenlane East. Doesn't look as though the wee thing has been there for very long. Please shout if you might need more direction. So sorry for your loss.
