Ups and downs of life

North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - KATH BROWN OPIN­ION

THUMBS UP

TO: The of­fer of free loos at Hick­ford park from Bell Block Marist rugby league club – a no­ble ges­ture.

TO: The Bishop’s Ac­tion Foun­da­tion’s of­fer to work with the gov­ern­ment to pro­vide 56 af­ford­able houses in Mar­fell. That’s a great act of Chris­tian­ity.

TO: Uruti School’s pig hunt to raise funds. Good on you and don’t worry about the PC bri­gade.

THUMBS DOWN

TO: South African rugby ref­er­ees and of­fi­cials who made a few dodgy calls in the Hur­ri­canes’ semi­fi­nal loss.

TO: And while we’re at it, just how did the Lions (the South African side) man­age to top the com­pe­ti­tion with­out once play­ing a New Zealand team. An equally dodgy com­pe­ti­tion.

TO: The coun­cil say­ing no to the of­fer of free loos at Hick­ford Park from Bell Block Marist rugby league club. Is the coun­cil flush with funds? If so, what’s with the rate rise? Just say yes, thank you very much.
