FROM THE EDITOR

South Waikato News - - Your Local News -

We have an in­ter­est­ing mix of sto­ries, news and views for you to mull over this week.

On page 1 we show how far we have come as a so­ci­ety. Horses once the stan­dard means of trans­port - now have very few places to go for a walk around here.

If those nags were to go for a wan­der down Toko­roa’s main street, they might have a long, se­ri­ous look at some of the lessthan-salu­bri­ous shop fronts. See our story on page 3 on that sub­ject.

Things get de­cid­edly light­hearted on pages 4-5 where we track the progress of a stolen tea cup. Go fig­ure.

On page 7, there is some­thing I could def­i­nitely re­late to - cheap school uni­forms. Hav­ing moved towns a cou­ple of years ago, I can fully un­der­stand the cost of re­fit­ting high school stu­dents for a school.

There is plenty to read to­day, so keep on flick­ing to the back where you will find a page of pic­tures of the heavy hail and rain on Fri­day.
