GAIA’S HEAD IN A PLASTIC BAG

Our ‘NZ National Treasure’ scientist-journalist Bob Brockie had another thought-provoking article published in the Dominion Post yesterday: ‘Plastic far from fantastic and issue now becoming drastic’.  It deals with the vast gyres of plastic rubbish which pollute the world’s oceans.

Wellington mayoral candidate Keith Johnson promises common sense policies and financial resilience if elected mayor.

KEITH JOHNSON SHOWS SORELY NEEDED LEADERSHIP ON THE PRACTICAL 'GREEN' SOLUTIONS TO TRANSPORT PLANNING IN WELLINGTON

Keith 

I read the Mayoral candidate responses to the Wellingtonian this week.

Congratulations-you were the only candidate who has the clear vision that mass transit in the form of light rail could be the best way to solve the problems of congestion at the Basin Reserve.

I encourage you to keep showing this leadership which is sorely needed from our future Mayor.

An Abandoned Farmhouse Garden in South Wairarapa

FOR ANNIE GRANT

She was a heavy, red and freckled lassie

Shipped from Greenock as a serving maid

He was older, with money, but she was strong

And she loved the work in making a farm: 

This was a place where she might belong

Weary at dusk with a bairn on her arm.
