Poll: What do you want from your library?

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

Wellington City Council is considering what to do with its earthquake-prone central library. Examples from New Zealand - like Christchurch's Turanga - and overseas show what a 21st century library can look like. What would you like to see from Wellington's new facility?

We’re adjusting the electorate boundaries

Electoral Commission

We’re adjusting our electorate boundaries for the next two general elections.

By making sure each electorate has about the same number of people, we can give all New Zealanders equal representation in Parliament. It’s all balance.
If we move one of your electorate boundaries, you could end up in a different electorate to the one you’re in now – so we show you what we’re proposing before we make any changes and give you the opportunity to share your thoughts.

Catnip for pain relief

Caitlin from Northland

Hi all, a friend of mine has a beloved cat that is on “cage arrest” for the next month due to surgery not being possible to fix a fractured leg. While they were at the vet they noticed her cage was stuffed full with catnip and when questioned the reply was that it was a great natural pain relief.
This cat is a trooper but we can all see she is still struggling from time to time so I’m writing in hope someone may be growing catnip or even have a few seeds that we can plant ourselves.
I personally would be more than happy to provide finance for anything that could be given but of course donations will be welcomed with open arms.

Cheers, Caitlin.
