ACC legal bills skyrocket, creating an 'uneven playing field' for claimants

Jacques Steenkamp Reporter from Sunday Star-Times

However, many injured Kiwis seeking to dispute rejected claims are concerned ACC is using private attorneys to outsmart them.

However, many injured Kiwis seeking to dispute rejected claims are concerned ACC is using private attorneys to outsmart them.

Russel Watts, 50, from Taupo, said he postponed his review earlier this week after he found out he'd be facing off against a senior corporate attorney from Wellington.

Hello Heroes of Te Mata School!

We are only a month away from our big annual fundraiser and it's all steam ahead!

We are down to the last table or 2 available, so if you want to come and haven't already booked your ticket or table you had better hurry if you want to beat the villains to it!

I have attached a copy of our advertising flyer and a ticket order/donation form. Please download and fill in, or if you have an Adobe account you may be able to fill it in on your computer and just email it to our amazing secretary. Her email address is on the form. Otherwise feel free to drop it into the school. We have a letterbox outside the office if it's outside school hours.

I hope you've all got your costumes ready. I can't wait to see what heroes and villains will make their appearance.

echeveria elegans - Mexican Snowball

Jeannette from Hastings Central

Sitting at the gate of 509 Avenue Road West Hastings, take as many or little as you like. First in first served. Great for any spot where not much will grow and in the spring has a lovely little pink flower. Great way to cut back the weeding. Will multiply quickly.

Please give your support this Balloon Day - Friday September 8



Struggling to breathe due to an asthma attack can be scary for the asthmatic and those around them.

It’s Asthma Awareness Week September 4 through to Balloon Day on Friday September 8. 1 in 6 Kiwis, struggle to blow up a balloon due to asthma.

Please help us in fundraising to support the more than 25,000* people in Hawke's Bay affected by asthma. We would gratefully appreciate your support, even if it’s a collection bucket in your workplace or an hour "shaking the bucket" at one of our collection points. All money raised in the Bay on Balloon Day stays in the Bay and will be used to fund our exercise subsidies.

If you're feeling creative....
Blue cupcakes, other baking and blue mufti days for a gold coin donation have all worked great in the past for our supporters. You might even come up with something cooler and more meaningful to you.

We can help..........
Breathe Hawke's Bay can provide balloons, posters and bucket if you'd like. We'll be blasting all our awesome supporters on our Facebook page for some recognition and as a way to say thanks.

As well as one on one consultations, we also deliver FREE respiratory health education for workplaces, schools, ECEs, community groups and sports clubs that include Asthma First Aid. These sessions take as little as half an hour and fit nicely into a staff meeting. Available during work and after hours.

Contact us NOW so we can get a bucket to you!
• Call us on 0800 ASTHMA (278 462) or 835 0018
• Let us know what you have planned.
• We will come visit you on Balloon Day, Friday September 8 to get photos and say thanks.
* Based on latest census population data and the ratio of 1 in 7 New Zealanders currently medicated for respiratory illness.

The soldiers were in the Battle of Baghak in August 2012 when two New Zealanders and four Afghans died, but were never interviewed as part of the Court of Inquiry carried out by the New Zealand Defence Force.
