Nurses vote to strike this Thursday

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi Waikato,

What do you think about your nurses rejecting the latest pay offer from District Health Boards? It's now been confirmed that 24 hours of strike action will begin at 7am Thursday.

A "majority" of the New Zealand Nurses' Organisation's (NZNO) more-than-30,000 members have chosen to take industrial action - a move described as "unprecedented".

What do you think about Thursday's strike? Were you surprised they rejected the last offer? Or do you think they deserve more? Let us know in the replies!

Needing urgent help

Tracie from Nawton

Hey neighbors, im looking for someone that could help trim alot of oversized plants. When i moved into our place the plants were just shrubs, they have been put in some areas so high you would need a ladder, the plants have grown past the brick wall and i cant get around the back to my clothes line as they have also grown outward and are touching my bedroom window. I would also need to find a way to dump the cuttings. Im a solo mum with a chronically ill child and have took on my baby nephew, so sadly money is tight. I also dont have any tools to do the graden. It be great if someone could help. I might be able to give something for it, or if you read this and your in the gardening feild, could you come do a quote as winz may help me. Thanks heaps :)

Train To Auckland ( well , Papakura )

Graeme from Frankton

I recall 3 or 4 months ago , Jamie Strange posting about how Labour ( and Enviroment Waikato I think ) were looking at putting on a daily train to Auckland . Read the smal print , and it was actrually to Papakura . Does anyone else rember it ? Can you remember the cost ? I had a strange idea it was going to take $6 million to fund it for 5 years ? I can't find the original post unfortunately .
