Duck calling

George Heagney Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Good morning all our lovely Manawatū neighbours,
A Manawatū teenager has become the first non-American to be crowned junior world duck-calling champion. Can you sound anything like a duck?

Annual food drive set to be canned due to sponsor woes and lagging goodwill

Matthew Dallas Reporter from Manawatū Standard

Morning Neighbours,
After running for 28 years, the big annual pre-Christmas food drive in Palmerston North is no longer considered viable. Part of the problem is potential sponsors don't want their name anywhere near plastic bags given their poor environmental reputation. However, the Salvation Army sends out recyclable bags.
Could you tell the difference between recyclable and non-recyclable plastic? Do you think businesses are overreacting, or does the annual cause need to change with the times?
Please mark comments NFP if you don't wish them to be included in an article.
