Poll: What do you think of a school calling police on a boy who shot a toy gun?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Paihia School called police after a boy shot a toy plastic gun on the playground. The boy's mother says the treatment was over the top but the ministry says it was correct. What do you think?

Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Springs Flat

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

Does anyone have an idea just *what* is going on with SH1 in Springs Flat? The road surface is disintegrating after recent 'resealing'. There are truckloads of loose stone chip floating around, I bet it's cost a fair few new windscreens by now (in fact I'm wondering why the insurance industry hasn't made a hue and cry about it yet!!)

It's disgraceful. Who is responsible for fixing this mess? NZTA? WDC?

But somebody really has to DO something.
