North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

What fab­u­lous week­end weather we have had. The moun­tain looked so mag­nif­i­cent in the win­ter sun it al­most me wish I could ski, but I hate heights.

Even though it is cold our read­ers seem to have plenty to do to keep them­selves busy. On page four we have the lovely story of peo­ple who are knit­ting blan­kets for the more un­for­tu­nate mem­bers of our com­mu­nity. It warms the soul to hear of how gen­er­ous peo­ple are.

Another in­di­ca­tion of the ac­tiv­ity level of our read­ers is the pop­u­lar­ity of the What’s On pages. Ev­ery week I have to leave some sub­mis­sions out be­cause we just do not have the room. Un­for­tu­nately ev­ery week my job is made eas­ier be­cause peo­ple miss the dead­line. You need to have them in to me by 5pm on Thurs­day or 10am Fri­day at the lat­est. This is be­cause my dead­line for get­ting the paper to the print­ers is 4pm on Mon­day. Some con­trib­u­tors get a bit cross if their sub­mis­sion does not ap­pear in print. I try to be fair but re­mem­ber com­mu­nity events will get pref­er­ence over com­mer­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.
