The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Palmer­ston North has largely missed out on the catas­tro­phes hap­pen­ing around the coun­try in the past week, with ma­jor earth­quakes, after shocks and flood­ing tak­ing its toll.

But while our prob­lems back home can seem small it doesn’t mean they’re any less emo­tional or hor­rific for those in­volved.

Take for ex­am­ple Hunny, the poor dog who has been miss­ing since Novem­ber 11 after be­ing washed down the Manawatu River.

Hunny’s owner Cherie Glen­den­ning is stay­ing pos­i­tive but it’s no doubt a heart-rend­ing time as pets are fam­ily mem­bers, too.

There’s been some great events hap­pen­ing around the city lately and it’s good to see peo­ple out there tak­ing part.

The events cal­en­dar will only be ramp­ing up as we move into Christ­mas and the holiday sea­son, so let’s hope the weather im­proves as well.
