To say that it was a disappointment to see the small turnout at the public drug and alcohol meeting in Waiuku, is an understatement. There was such a huge outcry and demand for help on social media from the community, asking for...

A note from Emma’s Desk

I don’t even know if I should be admitting this, but I am so excited to have a birthday issue of the newspaper. That’s right, it is my born day today. In all of the years I have been in print journalism, I have never had an...

A note from Emma’s desk

The passing of Mila the elephant has left me heart sore, as I have fond memories of growing up right next door to the Franklin Zoo. Our family formed a great relationship with Helen and her staff. From the age of five, we lived...
