Dunedin city councillor Lee Vandervis has rejected an apology
from Mayor Dave Cull for referring during the local body
elections to the councillor's experience and policies as
''shonky, nutty and extreme''.
One of the organisers of the Brighton Gala says he is
''slightly disappointed'' the Otago-Taieri A&P Society
could not hold its public show day on a Sunday so the events
would not clash, despite the gala previously moving its date
to accommodate the show's 150th anniversary.
