Loose Chip on Ratanui Rd

Marie from Waikanae

Hi all, just a heads up about the loose chip on Ratanui Rd. New seal has been laid and there is a considerable amount of loose metal. People are not adhering to the speed restrictions with cars and trucks speeding through the area. Recommend you avoid the road if possible. As a result of driving through yesterday i now appear to have stones in my brakes and my car is out of action until i can get it to my mechanic next week.

Dolly the collie has $25,000 surgery as owner keeps best mate mobile

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

It has been a rough two years for Dolly the collie. The problems with Dolly’s limbs began when she was 10, resulting in the surgery on three of her four lower limbs. Her fourth limb may require surgery in the future.
Over the last two years owner Alla Baider has spent $25,000 trying to keep her beloved pet mobile.
Dolly has an empathy with people, that really shone through the Covid lockdown, she said.
“On top of her good looks and winning smile, Dolly has a supernatural sense for whenever someone is feeling down or in pain. It’s impossible to still be upset after receiving a warm hug from her.”
