What do you think of the Hamilton-Auckland commuter train's name?

Libby Wilson Reporter from Hamilton Press

You may have heard it called The Tron Express, but the Auckland-Hamilton passenger rail service has been given a proper name.

It's Te Huia, and was unanimously endorsed by Hamilton City councillors.

However, it still needs final approval from a governance group. Read more here.

Back where it belongs

Matt Bowen Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours,

It was a special day in the newsroom on Monday as Stuff's chief executive Sinead Boucher announced a management buyout of the company, of which the Waikato Times is a part, from its Australian owner Nine Entertainment.

It puts an end to NZME's increasingly desperate bid to get its clutches on Stuff. It also puts it firmly in the hands of those who want the best for it, a NZ owner who understands the business.

What's your view on the Times moving back into NZ hands?

Read more local reaction to the buyout here.
