what on earth is the point .....

Mike from South Whangarei

Our new telephone book was delivered today. Not only is it only two thirds the size of the previous version which was pretty useless in it's own right it turned out that we are no longer listed in it. Comparison between the new one and its predecessor shows that we are in the middle of a list of about 30 phone subscribers who have been simply left out this year. (quality control/competence anyone?)

Wow! isn't this great customer service to people who have had the same phone at the same address for more than the last 20 years.

Is the region coping with the drought?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

Northland is now in drought conditions but the Ministry for Primary Industries will not declare the drought a medium-scale event unless the community cannot cope with the conditions. What do you think, is Northland coping okay? Is there a need to declare a medium-scale drought event?
