South Taranaki Star - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Once again we have a wealth of sto­ries about the many good peo­ple in South Taranaki, in­clud­ing the achiev­ers.

Of par­tic­u­lar note are the two young­sters who have ex­celled in vastly dif­fer­ent fields but are show­ing the way to others than hard work and ded­i­ca­tion will get you ev­ery­where you want to be.

On page four we have Ja­cob Caskey, the young ap­pren­tice who puts his all into his work and has won na­tion­wide recog­ni­tion for his ef­forts. The Taranaki Star con­grat­u­lates Ja­cob and his em­ployer who nom­i­nated him.

On page 39 we have Reece Holmes, who at just 10 years of age has won a na­tional squash ti­tle. He is the New Zealand Un­der 11 Boys squash cham­pion, a ti­tle he aimed for, worked for and achieved. Well done, Reece. Yours is an at­ti­tude that will see you suc­ceed in what­ever you set out to achieve.

As a Face­book com­men­ta­tor said: Haw­era is pretty good at pro­duc­ing quiet achiev­ers.

I hope all our read­ers have had a chance to en­joy our mag­nif­i­cent gar­dens and art events.
