Hos­pi­tal staff de­serve praise

South Waikato News - - OPINION/NEWS -

I would like to ex­press my sin­cere grat­i­tude to the doc­tor and staff at Toko­roa Hos­pi­tal. Be­ing a pa­tient, I ob­served how in­cred­i­bly hard they work, are pro­fes­sional and don’t al­ways get the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.

I would also like to ac­knowl­edge St John Am­bu­lance of­fi­cers for their care and ded­i­ca­tion. J Sim­monds

Toko­roa awe­some. Thank you so much. G Har­ris Toko­roa al­lowed to have any ex­cuses so nei­ther should he. S Petersen


R F Laing, chief ex­ec­u­tive of Waikato Re­gion says on pg 21 (in South Waikato News July 6) that two breaches of 50 mi­cro­grams per cu­bic me­tre breaches the na­tional stan­dards. Since 2005 un­der Cr Jenny Shat­tock, Cr Van Rooi­jen and Mayor Sin­clair and man­age­ment staff of South Waikato District Coun­cil this de­vel­op­ment has not had due pri­or­ity nor ded­i­cated brain power or cre­ative think­ing put to solv­ing the mat­ter. Ex­ceed­ing this stan­dard, by cit­i­zen fires to warm homes, will re­sult in busi­ness ap­pli­ca­tions be­ing turned down. A co-gen plant (burn­ing waste prod­uct railed in), to gen­er­ate elec­tric­ity, could be owned by the com­mu­nity to off­set four months of heat pump costs in win­ter. The rest of the year the elec­tric­ity could be sold to the na­tional grid. R Young Toko­roa
