■ With the Port under threat of losing its 100% community ownership, we now hear we may have to fight to keep Unison Network also.Have we not all learned huge lessons about selling off our intrastructures?? We must fight to retain these assets for the good of future generations.
■ Thank you Martin Williams for pointing out that the much promoted Option B for the port, is not only far more than what is actually needed and would be subject to a significant price risk. This ‘consultation” process is heavily biased and flawed. No one I know ever got documents.
■ Re the port documents delivery to households and consultation. We have a mailbox in both urban and rural and neither box/address has received anything from HBRC. Not good enough HBRC!
■ Great article written by Larry Dallimore in HBT but sadly Port of Napier has no agenda to save our beaches if they were concerned they would have done something to help the people of Napier, every time they dredge we lose a bit more beach proven fact
Halloween and Guy Fawkes
■ Get rid of Halloween and fireworks in NZ don’t need them.
■ There isn’t any good reason to celebrate guy fawkes.
■ Poor cat oners 3 or 4 nights a year you have crackers. I have them diging and pooing in my garden 365 nights a year.
■ It’s that time of the year when we hear that annoying, dull, invasive noise all over the place for a few weeks. Nothing grates the ear like “ban fireworks”
■ Basicaly Halloween is an anti Christain and pagan celebration of Evil spirits. Sadly, most kids and their parents would have no idea! Yip. We celebrate evil!
■ Totally agree with texter “more tricks less treats”. My sister waited for the kids, came around the side of their house with a white tablecloth covering all but her face carrying an axe. As she let out a growl, the kids took off. She called them back for muslie bars but they wouldn’t come back. They went in their lunchboxes! Very funny!
■ How sad to see a horse die because of the pathetic childishness of fireworks. When are we going to grow up and ban this nonsense
■ Leg Up Trust Hastings had a much loved horse pass away due to fireworks. These horses are therapy horses & are so important to the work they do for vulnerable kids. Ban private sales-stop the many deaths & injuries caused by fireworks.
■ My dog has shivered, shaken and stressed through six straight evenings of fireworks now. Is there nothing anyone can do about this? ■ It is absolutely insane to allow fireworks to terrify, hurt and kill innocent animals.
We are not celebrating Guy Fawkes attempt to blow up parliament, we’re celebrating the fact that it was foiled. I personally think fireworks are ridiculous and create a lot of damage especially with animals & fires.
A brick bat to the HBRC who dumped a trailer load of black plastic plant and seedling pots at the Springfield Rd transfer station on Monday to go to landfill. Change your supplier if they are not recyclable. Walk the talk!!
Is Tollemarche Rd the new rubbish dump of Hastings It would b cheaper to put cameras in
■ Pukekos are nasty birds, they rip out plants from your garden, steal eggs and very anti social to other birds.
■ After the gusty winds on Saturday, I now have layers of dust covering my property alongside St Leonard’s Park. Surely covered by some resource consent requirement? Come on HDC.
■ What is it with TMOs, they have screens in front of them and see the same as us, The Kiwis were robbed of that dropped ball by England and given a try, and the Springboks were robbed by a no arms tackle, which was the same done by SBW for a red card, geez !
■ Pukekos are the most suicidal birds on the planet, and yes they get run over everywhere; not just on York Rd. Surely people don’t deliberately target them while driving, puting themselves and others at risk! Would they?
■ Pukeko are numerous, like pigeons and sparrows and mynah. They don’t fly as willingly so they get hit. They live in Oz too, but they are rare there.
■ Just read the flyer on the new pool proposal for Prebensen Drive put out by NCC. Who exactly wrote this, Mayor Bill’s spin doctors me thinks. So many inaccuracies.
■ In response to the tester denying ‘global warming’ — that term is no longer used and has been replaced with the more accurate ‘climate change’. Anyone who can be bothered reading even the most dumbed down science for the populous should understand that this is because not all areas of the world will get hotter! Some will intact become colder and rainier! I should hope that this won’t affect Havelock North property values too much, though.
■ The reason there is now security at the Te Mata Peak track is because people like George Williams and his friends ignored signs stating ‘Please keep out, track is closed, strictly no access’. They trespassed on private land and then posted photos of themselves on the track which a track expert had deemed dangerous.
■ When is the council going to spray the weed in the island pond at Anderson Park. It is getting more and more invasive each day??
■ I to agree with Bessie Manaena re fresh mussel quality. I no longer buy the immature or any of the mussels
■ Neighbours who have many Palm trees should consider pruning branches that produce millions of seeds, l’m sick of picking up and diging out the mess.
■ How much did the Great Australian race suck out of the NZ economy this time around
■ Thumbs up Corey Hogg to look after and love your animals. a beautiful cat and a speedy recovery.
■ Today travelled from Hastings to HB Airport. Well what a shambles of road cones at the approaches to roundabouts and motorists unsure of which lanes are for what very poor signposting particularly at the new airport road This needs to be addressed without delay before a serious accident occurs. When I got to the airport I saw people driving around the already full car park trying to work out how to get into the parks Inside the airport there I a sign showing the new road layout from the roundabout down to the airport What a pity no one had enough sense to advertise this in the paper not much use in the airport. Saw several motorists miss the new airport runoff and have to go half way to Bay View before they could turn around because of yet more road works on that road. Come on contractors sort it out before Xmas and before someone gets killed.
■ The Manawatu Gorge has been open for years. Wouldn’t be anything to do with the vibrations from the windmills that caused all the slips would it?
■ Topdesser aircraft noise Otane airstrip is controlled by AIA aviation NZ code of practise over populated areas. See Fly Neighbourly Program. Council thru RMA can control noise impacts on amenity areas.
■ Department of Conservation and Bird Sanctuary breeders such as Cape Kidnappers go to a lot of bother and expense to protect and breed native birds
■ Nearly all whiteware, electronic equipment and home appliances come prepacked from their manufacturers in expanded polystyrene packaging which is not recyclable and must be dumped in landfills (rubbish dumps). To protect New Zealand ‘s environment only cardboard and recycled paper should be used for packaging.
■ Last nite (Tuesday) I took my baby to Anderson Park, I was observing and watching him trying to get on the ‘flying fox’, to his side was a lady with her husband and two sons who helped him each time to get on, I could tell by her accent that she was from England, I was so touched by their kindness which proves, their are WONDERFUL people in this town, thankyou, who ever you are
■ Bouquet to the staff at the Stan Walker concert, so accommodating to people in wheelchairs, just made the event so stress free and enjoyable
RWW Jan W
■ Is there a Christmas remembrance service in Hastings / Havelock area planned for this year? Would be interested to know
■ Indicating at roundabouts. If you are turning left at the first exit of a roundabout: Signal left as you come up to the roundabout. If you are travelling more than halfway around a roundabout: Signal right as you come up to the roundabout, signal left as you pass the exit before the one you wish to take. If you are going ‘straight’ through a roundabout: Don’t signal as you come up to the roundabout, signal left as you pass the exit before the one you wish to take.
■ It used to be called the footpath and was only used by pedestrians. Now everybody and their vehicles use is, so is it now called a freeway. ■ Geez all these people texting in different ways how indicate at roundabouts no wonder people are confused, if unsure I say to you people if going straight ahead don’t indicate, I’m sick of people indicating to go right and go straight ahead.
■ Indicating at roundabouts. To the texter Nov 7. Please read road code as you are wrong. Turning left at first exit, indicating left when approaching. ■ I support the article in Page 3 regarding the comments made by Shaun Bates on the issue of chlorine in our water.
■ Oh my gosh . . . sheep are trying to find every bit of shade possible . . . what happen to animal rights . . . even if they are only to be slaughtered
