FROM THE EDITOR
For the next few weeks we have a new reporter working on the South Waikato News.
Tamara Thorn is a Tokoroa local who has recently graduated and is now working for the Taupo Times and the South Waikato News.
We are keen to hear your stories and news tips so please feel free to contact Tamara firstname.lastname@example.org, 027 5647168.
In this week’s issue we take a look at some of the news and activity going on around the place and as far afield as Fieldays.
We take a look at the schools in the area that are bursting at the seams on page 5 and on page 4 we tell you about the new young professionals group that is starting up in the region.
Also on page 4, we take a look at the visiting mayors and council bosses who converged in the South Waikato last week.
On page 6 is the sad conclusion to the hunt for missing woman Kim Richmond and the charges that have now been laid over her death.
