Poll: Do you support a sugar tax?

Brittany Keogh Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Hi neighbours, an international report has ranked NZ's child obesity rate second-worst in the OECD with 39 per cent of Kiwi kids overweight or obese. Unicef is now calling for the Government to introduce a sugar tax to curb the problem. Would you support this? What do you think needs to be done about child obesity?

Cat trap

Kevin from Kohimarama

Does anyone have a cat trap they can lend me? An unknown cat has just ruined five or six new seedlings in my garden and I am not happy. I intend to treat the cat kindly and transport it to the SPCA. This has been going on for weeks. Today's disaster is the final straw. It's not the cat's fault but I am sick of neighbour's cats using my garden to shit in and make a mess. Needless to say they will also be hunting birds.
