Sounds rumours indicate it will be 40% OFF all ticket prices. Sounds like Uncle Ted & Grand-pop Bob are up-to something very, very special again. Does anyone know what they're up-to???? The Corner shops top Waimea Road has been an iconic well known destination Antique shop for years. Shop looks to be chocker full like an Aladin's Cave of treasures. I'll be racing along there to uncover some of the long forgotten buried treasures & Gold nuggets & relics & from the past. Is it Uncle Ted's Birthday ??? or just a passing phase??? What's the future plans??? Who know's any more, please let me know ASAP as currently unable to phone the fantastic shop for SALE Confirmation. Anyone nearby can confirm if true??? thanks in advance. Please confirm details once actually confirmed if there's definitely a 40% SALE ON NOW, Are the rumours are True????

Our Part in the October Elections

Stephen from Todds Valley

I was surprised when a friend told me he’d ripped up and discarded his voting papers. He seemed to believe all the candidates were pretty much the same and that voting wouldn’t change anything.

He seemed to believe all the candidates were pretty much the same and that voting wouldn’t change anything. This intelligent, kindly man has been around for about 70 years and it was a bit sad to think he felt so helpless.

We are living in an age of significant change and it is essential we vote according to our interests and beliefs. It is important for good people to vote. It can also be useful to discuss our views so we can test our ideas and maybe help others to see things from a different perspective.

I will vote after considering all the candidates. I will choose those whose ideals are closest to mine and with whom I best resonate…. not because of their qualifications, their time served with the Council (or DHB), because they’ve attended so many meetings … or because others like them. I will pay attention to my innermost feelings and make my selection according to how peaceful I feel with my choice.

We are unlikely to have perfect governing bodies after this election, but we can improve. We should strive for the best, and full participation must help in this regard.

Spending pennies on public loos to the tune of $30k per square metre

Skara Bohny Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Have you seen the new public toilets by the Suter gallery? The council must have been feeling flush when they built them, because they cost $30,333 per square metre to build, more than ten times the price per square metre of building a house in Auckland last year. Do you think it was money wisely … View moreHave you seen the new public toilets by the Suter gallery?
