High street upgrade

Ron from Motueka

Whoever thinks the modifications of High Street will improve the traffic flow through our town centre is dreaming
The TDC the Waimea dam which should never have got of the ground {Thank you to the previous mayor } and now all TDC ratepayers will be contributing to the out of control cost for years to come and if our rates are not already far to high for what we receive from TDC
This decision by the TDC shows us all what a weak disjointed lot we have voted in to run our affairs
These traffic lights will further cause traffic build up in High Street and this will be worse during the summer season
To see heavy traffic trucks having to use High Street is madness and more than ha
lf the traffic travelling through High Street have no intention of wanting to stop but to continue there journey up to Golden Bay so why not a traffic bypass god forbid we have on each side of High Street plenty of room
Rest assured when these modifications are complete we will be in the same position we now have with the Waimea dam and we will say why did we let this happen

Cell Phone in car use

Robert from Motueka

Just so you know if you get caught using your phone will driving the FINE has now doubled to $150. Driving between Motueka and Nelson every weekday I have lost count of drivers using their phones. I do hope you get caught. The fine should be $500 and your phone taken off you. 22 people have died on NZ roads in the past 5 years due to phone use.
Just my thoughts.

Would you want a final goodbye with an animal you had helped?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Jen Trow earned the trust of Charlie the stray, black cat before taking him to the vet. Thankfully, Charlie was microchipped but Jen would have loved one last cuddle with the cat and to have met his family. Have you ever helped an animal for some time before finding its home?
