FROM YOUR PA­PER

North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

With other me­dia fill­ing pages, air­waves and our tele­vi­sion screens with po­lit­i­cal sto­ries, I thought I’d give you all a break. Let’s face it, if all those prom­ises could be achieved we’d be the rich­est coun­try in the world - and we are not.

The sad­dest story has to be that the Omata School chil­dren lost the plants and trees sup­posed to be in their gar­den. How is it that there are so many peo­ple who think they are en­ti­tled to help them­selves to other peo­ple’s prop­erty? The good thing is that the whole com­mu­nity got in be­hind the school and most of the plants have al­ready been re­placed. On the other side of the coin, we are telling the sto­ries of two more peo­ple who have been recog­nised by the mayor and coun­cil with Cit­i­zens Awards. It is peo­ple like these who more than make up for thiev­ing lowlifes.

Once again, we have more pages of What’s On as you con­tinue to show us how in­volved you are in sports, clubs, mu­sic, art etc. When it comes to the arts and sport we surely do our­selves proud.
