Ruapehu Press - - Your Local News - Daniel Hutchin­son

There is a Tau­marunui woman out there who will be thank­ing her lucky stars for the ea­gle eyed crew at Max Mcken­zie Builders [story p1].

And how tough must she be to sur­vive a night out in freez­ing con­di­tions like that? An in­cred­i­ble sur­vival story re­ally.

It al­ways re­stores my faith in hu­man­ity when peo­ple rally to­gether to help oth­ers out and this is a prime ex­am­ple of a great com­mu­nity in ac­tion.

Of course, things do not al­ways go so smoothly and on page 3, we take a look at the di­vi­sion go­ing on at the Na­tional Park Com­mu­nity Board.

This is a small board and it strug­gled to achieve five mem­bers at the lat­est elec­tion. How­ever, even small boards have to learn to work to­gether, oth­er­wise noth­ing gets done.

They are there to rep­re­sent the in­ter­ests of the peo­ple who live in the Na­tional Park ward and if good de­ci­sions are not be­ing made be­cause of per­sonal dif­fer­ences, then what is the point of hav­ing a com­mu­nity board?
