Jermaine Wilson was held in cus- tody and admitted wilful damage in court last week. He tagged the Upper Hutt railway station subway at 9.45am on August 19. Prosecuting Sergeant Ian McDon- ald said Wilson caused $70 worth of damage and he broke a bail condition -- relating to a different charge -- not to leave home. Defence counsel Mike Sceats said Wilson was on his way to community work at the time: I am advised he essentially did the action out of boredom. He s prepared to clean up the graffiti if he is given an opportunity. Wilson recently moved to Upper Hutt with his family and had cogni- tive difficulties with reading and writing, Mr Sceats said. It takes him a long time to pro- cess the consequences of his actions. Judge Pat Grace remanded him on bail until October 19. You breach, you will be remanded in custody. Make no mistake about that, Judge Grace said. GETTING SORTED Spring-clean can help finances too By DAVID KNEEBONE Sorted spokesperson ' If you have not managed to stay on track, examine the reasons why and make any necessary adjustments. ' Spring has finally arrived and while some of you may be thinking about giving your home a spring clean and the garden an overhaul, it is also the perfect time to review how well you are tracking against any goals you set at the start of the year. Knowing what you want to achieve in life and having your money in order so your finances do not get in the way of achieving those goals is vital. So, how are you doing? Have you stuck to the budget you set? Have you paid off your debt as much as you had hoped? And if you are able to save, are your savings growing as much as you planned? If you have stuck to your plan, congratulations -- it takes disci- pline to make a plan work. If you have already achieved some of the goals you set, are there new ones you would like to set? Or perhaps you would like to achieve some of the other goals faster. If you have not managed to stay on track, examine the reasons why and make any necessary adjustments. Was your budget too tight? Perhaps it did not cover all your expenses. Perhaps you need to allow for expenses and income that that have changed during the year. Were some of the goals unrealistic? Use your experience to adjust your plan and make one that is more likely to work. Ifyoudidnotsetaplan,itisnot too late to make one. Saving up for Christmas may be one of your short-term goals -- if you get organised now it is going to be more achievable. By giving your finances a spring clean, you will be more likely to start 2012 in a better position financially. Sorted.org.nz is a free indepen- dent money guide run by the Retirement Commission.
