Supporting initiatives such as this will create long-term sustainability, and create jobs for locals -- not to mention the support they are giving to businesses that are innovative. Well done to all involved in this project, and I look forward to seeing the plant up and operational. NICK THOMAS, Upper Hutt Many thanks Re Lives balance in the voice of strangers, Thank you to A Guest for your warm and heartfelt comments advertised in the Upper Hutt Leader of July 6. Your sincere words melted my heart and drew forth fresh tears of sadness. May you be blessed for your warmness and kind thoughts! A special acknowledgement to Stan of Upper Hutt Victim Support for your support, and compassion during our trial of tribulation throughout the ensuing week. It takes a special person to have a gift of empathy for all, and from the whanau of Toa-Temarama and Wilds Family, we thank you for your unselfishness and bless you with all of our hearts. To the Upper Hutt police/Wellington station, Wellington Regional Victim Support, to family and friends, to those whom we did not know, thank you all for your kind assistance and support. On a final note I would like to address the following which I feel has had a major impact on my life: Qualification -- I believe when a person pursues a career as a doctor there is extensive training involved. Doctors, nurses, ambulance crew -- without training in their profession they would be unable to mend broken bodies. Conclusion: Strangers are deemed competent to undertake life-changing pathways for many families, on evidence heard, yet not know them. Legislation should allow families to participate in jury process; after all it s our lives in the balance not strangers. Kindest regards. CHRISTINE IRENA WILDS (Nani to granddaughters of Kane Toa Temarama RIP -- 12-09-2010) Child safety thanks A few weeks ago the lights on the River Rd at Totara Park Bridge were not working. Unbeknown to me, my grandson had left home on his bike to ride to school. Near the bridge a lady spoke to him to see if he was intending to cross the road to his school. She advised him to go home again as it was far too dangerous for anyone to (try) crossing the road. He listened to her and returned home. By this time I had headed off to work and was not there for him, so he used his brains and approached a neighbour who contacted his mum and it got sorted so he still arrived at school in time. To the kind lady a big thank you, as we don t know what he would have attempted in the situation. We have spoken to him about situations like this and now have a plan in place to deal with these. I hope there are many more adults who would also take this stance and talk with a child in a situation like this and tell them to return home or a neighbour and not actually ask them where they live or offer them a lift, bright lady, great response on this occasion. ANN DEVLIN, Upper Hutt (abridged) Girl discovers treasured locket The locket stolen with a woman s wallet has been found. It was handed to police on Friday by a girl, 7, who found it on the ground outside the Brown Owl shops. The family read about the locket s importance in last week s Upper Hutt Leader. The owner is absolutely delighted and plans to thank the girl personally.
