Tur­bine photo has us scratch­ing our heads

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Res­i­dents fought hard a few years ago to stop a wind farm be­ing built in Pau­ata­hanui, but it ap­pears th­ese teens from 1996 were tur­bine fans. The four­some from the mys­tery Kapi-Mana News photo were quickly and en­thu­si­as­ti­cally iden­ti­fied on Face­book as Lihe Nouata, Tim, Jor­dan and Che.

‘‘Hahahahaha OMG Kool! lolz FLASH­BACK al­right lol,’’ Shalom Sivena- Ioapo Nouata said.

‘‘ Awe­some photo! Great find!’’ Irene Wil­son added.

Reader Sarah Piper iden­ti­fied her­self as a fel­low tur­bine fan.

‘‘Good on them, cool photo find! Though I’m proud to say I was one of the ones not in­cluded in the res­i­dents op­pos­ing [the wind­farm] in 2008/2009.’’

How­ever, the sub­ject of the news story re­mains ob­scure. We can only guess the group made their own eco-en­ergy source as part of a school project.

We’d love to hear from any­body who re­mem­bers this story: email news@kmananews.co.nz.
