Minimum wage, no help and on the ladder at 25: here's how they did it

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I loved talking to Courtney Mason about how she and her husband ben bought their first home. It really offers a lot of hope for folks who might be looking at the property market and wondering what on earth is happening out there these days.
Courtney and Ben were tenacious and bold, and now they're living happily in their Hawke's Bay home.
Have a read and see how they did it, and while you're at it have a listen to our third episode of First Rung, the podcast for first home buyers for a little more inspiration.

We Say, You Say: Should police be armed?

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Hi Northland,

With yet another police officer shot at by armed offenders, the Police Association have renewed calls for police to be armed at all times. A female officer's vehicle was shot at on October 27 after two men stopped her along State Highway 11, near the Puketona Junction at about 4.15am.

Do you think that Police should have better access to firearms?
