what on earth is the point .....

Mike from South Whangarei

Our new telephone book was delivered today. Not only is it only two thirds the size of the previous version which was pretty useless in it's own right it turned out that we are no longer listed in it. Comparison between the new one and its predecessor shows that we are in the middle of a list of about 30 phone subscribers who have been simply left out this year. (quality control/competence anyone?)

Wow! isn't this great customer service to people who have had the same phone at the same address for more than the last 20 years.

What do you think of the Tangiteroria fire?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

UPDATE: The Tangiteroria Sports Complex fire was deliberately lit. The Tangiteroria community is in mourning after its Sports Complex was razed in a fire in the early hours of Thursday. The complex was the heart of the rural community and held plenty of history after being built by local families. What do you think?
