What do you think about your local art?

Mandy Te Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours, are there any questionable-looking sculptures in your area? Talks of NZ's "ugliest" sculptures have been hot with a giant hand recently moving to the capital. Boy Walking in Potters Park has received mixed reviews and before that, a noodles sculpture called OnDo also had mixed reviews. Have you spotted any other interesting sculptures in your area?

Does alcohol marketing need to be reined in?

Harrison Christian Reporter from Central Leader

Hi all,

A Kiwi academic is calling for an international treaty, like the one in place for tobacco, that would limit alcohol marketing in spaces like sport and social media. Of particular concern, the professor says, are targeted ads on Facebook and Instagram that are invisible to policy makers. Are you a parent worried about the level of exposure your child has to alcohol marketing? If so, please get in touch: harrison.christian@stuff.co.nz

Quick-thinking stranger saves Mt Roskill man's life

Caroline Williams Reporter from Central Leader

Jay Kumar technically shouldn't be alive today, but he is, thanks to the quick actions of those around him when he went into cardiac arrest at Mercury Plaza foodcourt last September.

The Mt Roskill local was given CPR by a bystander until emergency services arrived, which he credits with saving his life.

He doesn't know who the person was, but says it was a "godsend" they were there.
