Hard issues remain for new govt EKERS' WEEK The election is over, the victors are rejoicing, the vanquished licking their wounds. It is going to be interesting to see how all the issues facing the new Government are going to be solved. They are not going to go away in a hurry anytime soon. Pike River, Rena and the earthquake stricken areas are still to be reckoned with. We are also seeing a number of new players, although we would have lost a lot of good potential leaders when they lost their seats. Still there is no reason why they should not seek re-election in another three years if their lives in the meantime have not taken a new path. Itwasapitythatalotof younger people apparently did not vote, it did not seem to occur to them that their futures could hinge on Government policy. Apathy also played a part. The next three years are going to be very interesting but perhaps not to the liking of everyone. We can only hope that there are some constructive advances come out of those years that will benefit all New Zealanders and not a favoured few. E KEATS Upper Hutt Gwilliam 'right but wrong' John Gwlliam is right but he's wrong about trespassing repeat offenders who scrawl and scratch other people's property. He's right to speak his mind and to stand up for what he believes to be the proper way to do things. I applaud him for taking an unpopular stand and being willing to argue the point (I suspect he may well be right that it is not legally possible to trespass offenders from a public place). However, I couldn't disagree more that the trespass notice shouldn't be served. Michael Laws was told that Whanganui couldn't ban gang patches but the council did, and it still does. Repeat taggers will continue to inflict criminal damage until they suffer more than they gain from doing it. It seems to me that stopping access to their main galleries'' is a pretty good way to apply some pressure, so congratulations to the police for taking the initiative. ADRIAN SPARROW Upper Hutt Appeal stocks pantry Thank you to all the customers of the major supermarkets in Upper Hutt City for their generous donations of food items and cash at our recent appeal. Thank you also to the supermarket managers and members of the Upper Hutt congregation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints who volunteered their time to collect donations. The response will enable the foodbank to continue to provide necessary support to families in our community through the Christmas-New Year period. The foodbank always welcomes additional non perishable food, which may be delivered to its premises, 64 Martin St, on Monday, Wednesday or Friday mornings. KELVIN STRONG Chairman/co-ordinator Upper Hutt Food Bank Reunion Otago Boys' High, 150th, 2013. A major part of the lead-in to the festivities will be accumulation of contact details for all pupils who have attended the school since 1863. See obhsfoundation.co.nz or contact the school's foundation office, P O Box 5077, Dunedin, or phone 477 8977.
