The long term financial impacts for these clubs, and consequently for the many NZ’ers who enjoy the game, will be far reaching.   Please

The Delta Power Company says they need to be cut down as they are growing in to overhead powerlines.  Surely there is a better solution to this such as moving the lines or putting them underground.

Say no to alcohol next to Southern Cross Campus

In their stupidity, the goons at the Auckland District Licensing Committee have approved a new liquor shop directly opposite a large South Auckland school – the Southern Cross Campus.

The Campus educates pupils from year 1-13 – more than 1500 students attend the school. The new Thirsty Liquor shop will be directly opposite the sc

Save the Hamilton Tiger from euthanasia.

While it is a very sad day for the family of the keeper who has died in Hamilton, NZ. I do not want to see an innocent animal put to death because the keeper did not follow procedures and take all necessary precautions before entering the enclosure of a wild animal. I feel this accident was caused by over familiarity, and is not the animals fault, therefore the tiger should not be euthanized.
