FROM THE EDI­TOR

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

The ab­sence of the Square Cir­cu­lar in last week’s edi­tion of The Tri­bune was no­ticed by many of our read­ers who en­joy look­ing through it on a monthly ba­sis.

We had ob­vi­ously in­tended to in­clude it but were un­able to do so due to un­forseen cir­cum­stances aris­ing from the Kaik­oura earth­quake.

The Cir­cu­lar is printed in the South Is­land, which meant the trucks that de­liver it to Manawatu did not make it here in time for the de­liv­ery be­cause of de­lays caused by road dam­age. While I do apol­o­gise for any in­con­ve­nience this may have caused, I hope you’ll take the time to give it a read this week.

In this week’s edi­tion we also wel­come the re­turn of Palmer­ston North mayor Grant Smith’s monthly col­umn. The mayor took a break from writ­ing the col­umns prior to the Palmer­ston North elec­tion race but has re­turned fol­low­ing his land­slide vic­tory. His lat­est col­umn is in our Con­ver­sa­tions sec­tion on page 13.
