South Taranaki Star - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

The first week of the school hol­i­days are al­most fin­ished and by now the lit­tle ones, in par­tic­u­lar, will need to be en­ter­tained. The South Taranaki li­braries put on brilliant hol­i­day pro­grammes and there is bound to be one that your son, daugh­ter or grand­child would en­joy. See the web­site at for a full list of ac­tiv­i­ties.

This week we are run­ning two sports pages, a rugby story and a sports col­umn, both writ­ten by ex­pe­ri­enced award-win­ning sports jour­nal­ist Gor­don Brown. I know how dis­ap­pointed read­ers have been with the lack of sports cov­er­age in the print me­dia and I am try­ing to do some­thing about it. I am still un­able to run a page of re­sults be­cause of the tem­plates we must use. Reg­u­lar read­ers will no­tice that the tar­get shoot­ing club gets a photo in ev­ery week and dur­ing the sea­son the cy­cling club did also. That is the best way to get cov­er­age of your sport, send me a photo that is no smaller than 1meg and re­mem­ber to iden­tify who is in it.

News has changed for­ever and we must go with the flow.
