Which idiot designed this suicidal design of a cycleway ? Yet again, another near miss along there as well as a crazy cyclist who assumed he didn't need to bother to look or slow down for cars trying to see their way in our out.... this guy even punched my car, made threats & wanted a fight...Something needs to be done or there will be a serious accident or maybe there has been already ?
Just making all aware, after a beautiful weekend away in Takaka, we arrived home at 1:50 yesterday afternoon to find our home had been broken into. We travelled away for the kids soccer games. On arrival I noticed our front door was left wide open, walked inside to see bedrooms were turned upside down, all our personal belongings rummaged through. Forensics have said they would have used a crow bar to force open back door destroying both locks. A Canon camera valued around $1000 which was left behind by mistake, a few sentimental jewelery items and hair straightener is what we have noticed missing so far. Such a huge distress for our family so unsettling, makes it worse when you don't have answers and knowing we may not get any either.. just had to make you all aware, so keep yourselves and homes safe neighbours.
