Zeal­ous ban­ning

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

(Abridged) Ed­i­tor,

I have read this week’s KapiMana News, and what caught my at­ten­tion was the ar­ti­cle about the ban­ning of gang in­signia.

I visit my brother, who is buried at the same ceme­tery, two or three times a week, and have never found the gang mem­bers/ head­stones a prob­lem.

I per­son­ally think that if you ban ev­ery­thing peo­ple be­lieve in and all that we know, you may as well ban re­li­gious head­stones as well. Re­mov­ing Mary and Je­sus.

This in­ci­dent has hap­pened once that we know of, yet thou­sands are buried there.

MONIQUE MAK­ENE, Porirua con­ges­tion com­ing out of Aotea?’’

Claire: ‘‘I’d rather the coun­cil buy it than a de­vel­oper who could fit the equiv­a­lent of a whole sub­urb into that space. And for those wor­ried about who will live in it, wait for the final de­tails of the ac­tual deal to be re­vealed.’’

Demelza: ‘‘Fi­nally, a for­ward­think­ing coun­cil. Deputy Mayor Liz Kelly nailed it, once land like this is sold and ‘‘de­vel­oped’’ it is lost for­ever. Ku­dos to this coun­cil for think­ing out­side the box. I wish more coun­cils showed the same fore­thought.’’

Jan: ‘‘PCC is un­be­liev­able. Do the coun­cil­lors think all ratepay­ers have bot­tom­less pock­ets. It’s time this un­nec­es­sary spend­ing stopped as some of us are try­ing to man­age on su­per and can­not af­ford the con­stant in­creases in rates.’’
