FROM THE ED­I­TOR

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

I would just re­ally like to con­grat­u­late NZ Deaf Black rep­re­sen­ta­tives Tama Al­bert and and Ka­mau Wise who have re­turned vic­to­ri­ous from rep­re­sent­ing New Zealand in Ar­gentina.

The Toko­roa guys have done us proud and I’m so glad we can help share their story of vic­tory with you this week.

I look for­ward to fol­low­ing their fu­ture jour­ney with the NZ Deaf Blacks.

Also this week we take a step back to the eight­ies when li­brar­ian Rosalyn Pit­tams was the talk of the town af­ter com­ing third in Mas­ter­mind.

This week she shares her story of tele­vi­sion fame mainly to stop ru­mours that she’ll be com­pet­ing in the cur­rent se­ries screen­ing on TVNZ.

While she says she’d love to be on screen again, she says com­mon sense pre­vailed and she de­cided to step back and let oth­ers bask in the glory of Mas­ter­mind.

I do hope you en­joy the pa­per this week.

It’s filled with great, pos­i­tive sto­ries from around the re­gion.
