Former mayor Ray Wallace's first day in his new job

Matt Tso Reporter from The Hutt News

Is Ray Wallace popular or polarising?

After nine years as mayor Ray Wallace didn't even have his feet under the desk of his new job at Ray White Kemeys Brothers real estate when he was described as polarising in a press release sent out by his new boss. An updated release shortly after switched "polarizing" out for "popular".

Friday Feathered Friend

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Hey Neighbourly folk, this week something a bit different - a lizard.
Photographer Louise Thomas snapped the image on a recent expedition to photograph some new bird species.

"I've had an amazing 24-hours. Yesterday, my faithful porter and I went out to Matiu/Somes Island. We saw sooty shearwaters, kākāriki, aka red-crowned parakeet, numerous skinks, and on the way back a spotted shag near the Days Bay wharf.
All three birds are new species for me. I'm afraid I have no idea what sort of skink this is, I think common skink, but it has a dark iris? Suggestions from those in the know much appreciated - I'm going cross-eyed trying to work it out on the internet.
Funny story, both Chris and I thought this was a railway spike holding up the wood on the edge of the step, then Chris said "wait, that spike has little hands."
