FROM THE EDITOR

South Waikato News - - Your Paper, Your Place -

It is great to see an es­tab­lished non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion tak­ing a long, hard look in the mir­ror.

Com­mer­cial en­ti­ties do it all the time - they do it or they dis­ap­pear.

So for the South Waikato SPCA to front up to its crit­ics and its own mem­bers and com­mu­nity, takes a fair bit courage.

If you are not try­ing to im­prove at all times, then chances are you are go­ing in the other di­rec­tion.

We live in a com­mu­nity where things are chang­ing all the time and we need to be ques­tion­ing those who make the rules and en­force them.

The on-go­ing stand-off over the beam in the bar on page 5 is a good ex­am­ple of that.

On the face of it, it seems like some­thing that should be able to be re­solved fairly quickly.

It is an ex­tra big week­end on in Tokoroa this week, so make sure you send us your favourite pic­tures,

Daniel Hutchin­son
