I heard on the grapevine that, as from November, residents won't be able to bring their own food. Instead, they will have to buy it from the café. Out of interest, who could afford to do this? Who's idea was it and why? It's a relatively cheap option for Parents. There were 7 families enjoying their parties yesterday. If it ain't broken, why fix it? Has anyone else heard this? If so, your comments would be appreciated. Thank You.
Meet Shane Brearley, one of our Pilots.
“It is all about getting the patient where they need to go – we often don’t know what is happening with the patient until after the mission is completed.” And the calls come thick and fast some days.
A combination of hospital transfers or a full rescue in the rural reaches of Northland’s rugged landscapes – or a long flight over the ocean to a ship or vessel out at sea – its always an unknown of what lays ahead.
No two days are the same, and each and every time the pilots have to ensure the choppers are ready. “It’s always different. Each mission, it is nice to know you are making a difference.
We are there as a pilot to transport these people who need help to get where they need to go, whether it’s a hospital transfer for urgent surgery or a full rescue scenario,” he says.

Northland MP Matt King is floating a member's bill which would require the criminal history of election candidates to be published, if they were convicted of a crime punishable by two or more years' jail time. What do you think? Would it change the way you vote?
