Yet the ORC are telling farmers in Otago that even though
Otago is facing drought conditions and farmers are not
allowed to use water or shoot any rabbits, they will have to
pay huge sums of money to pay for the poisons to get rid of

will those farmers' names be added to this disgraceful list?
Nightcaps people rightly ask why intoxicated townies want

Local schools should look into charging families in their
communities a key rental for the summer including older
families, or adults who no longer go to the school. Under the
condition that an adult is there at all times to supervise
their kids. All the school would really need to do is get the
families to sign paper work saying that they do not hold the
school responsible for any accident while using the pool
outside of school hours. This would help fund the pool for
the school. When I was a kid many, many, many years ago. the
local school I went to on the west coast did this. However
this was more due to their being no public pool where I lived
at the time.
It may have made sense to contract a service when carparks
were staffed and you'd pay an attendant, but now that they're
automated it's much more reasonable to have council staff
service the parks. It can't be much different than managing
the automated ticketing machines on street parking.
So the question asked was, "Is Little a better match for John
Key than the previous Labour leaders". Does that fact that

leader was Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street, Oscar might
well be a better challenge to Key than the previous Labour
This may be an improvement for Labour and recent developments
in Australia show that huge losses can be turned around.
However there is a large amount of ground to be made up yet.
