Cloan said while he kept hoping for â&#x20AC;&#x153;a  better  summer  next  yearâ&#x20AC;?,  a  multitude  of  factors prompted him to shut up shop.

to  QV  from  the  councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  previous  valuation  providers,  Valuation  and  Management Services. Raglan  Community  Board  chairman  and  information  retrieval  expert Rodger Gallagher said at the  time it seemed QV had not run a data  match against the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building  consent database. Meanwhile  council  general  manager  strategy  and  support  Tony  Whittaker  says  whether  objectors  -&#$ /*(3%#4$ *1$ ("#$ *2(,*)#$ %&'($ <6$ QV  or  by  the  council  varies  from  case to case, and depends on the type  of property.

The  Greenslade  Road  resident,  whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  looking  to  sell,  was  shocked  when  QV  wiped  $170,000  off  the  capital  value  of  her  waterfront  property  in  its  revaluation  exercise  last  year  for  Waikato  District  Council. So she put in an objection â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and  last  week  QV  wrote  to  say  her  CV  has  been  amended  to  $890,000,  a  staggering  $220,000  up  on  its  previous valuation and $50,000 more  than  her  CV  before  the  revaluation  exercise began. She  says  it  was  clear  when  QV  called  to  inspect  the  property  that  they  knew  nothing  about  a  studio­ sleepout  built  on  the  property  in  recent years. That and other cases ­­ including  one  where  a  new  house  in  Lily  Street  was  missed  entirely  in  QVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s  sweep  and  the  new  valuation  &#B#,(#4$ */+6$ ("#$ +-/4$ ;-+2#$ A.T.

ECCA Insulation Grants

Seed of the month: Rocket

Did you know that you can get up to 60% of the cost of insulating your home paid for by the government through ECCA Warm Up New Zealand grants? If you are renting your landlord could get the same grant.

As the name implies, few plants grow faster than Rocket (Eruca sativa). Part of the Brassica family, the dark, pungent leaves are excellent fare in a winter salad. When it goes to seed, enjoy eating the flowers too. Also known as arugula, as well as other names, it can be confused with ‘Wild Rocket’ (Diplotaxis Tenuafolia). Latin names may seem outdated but are vital to distinguish between plants when there is doubt about its common name.

If you have a community services card, you or your landlord could get 60% of the cost of insulation covered, or 33% if you don’t have a CSC. If you want to know more about ECCA grants, !"#$!%&'()!&"*#(&+,-&.*/&0*/&(1#2&(%&'$!'3& out the ECCA website. 45,5,56&7#$!&41*#89&,*!%:9&,;0'"!*'9&6%1<#=&.%!& a local provider who regularly insulate homes in Raglan and can give you a quote for insulating your home

No insulation? These tips can help keep in the heat... If you can’t heat the whole house, focus on getting one room warm

beans

Beans rarely cross-pollinate. Select completely dry pods from your healthiest, most productive plants to use next year. Make sure the seeds are absolutely dry before storing. A few days on a plate in the hot water cupboard, or in a breezy and dry shady spot will do the trick.

Winter Warmers The trick to keeping and older home warm and dry is to balance daytime and evening activity

Seed saver of the month: Beans

Announcing… Timebank Raglan!

Damp air is harder to heat than dry air

Get long, lined curtains on your windows and close them when the sun Open curtains goes down and windows during the day - a ventliated house is healthier

Use draught stoppers on doors and put draught excluder on your windows

Cut back trees and shrubs from your windows - they block the sun and encourage damp

Dry clothes outside or next to an open window

Lack of light and ventilation causes damp - mould and mildew grow and the house is harder to heat

What is a timebank? Timebanks allow members to swap time and services. Everyone’s time is valued equally, so an hour of my time is worth an hour of yours. Some examples of timebank trades include dog walking, babysitting, garden help, craft or cooking or music lessons, minor repairs around the home, doing the shopping for someone, rides to the airport or town, etc… When someone gives their services, they earn a Timebank credit which can be redeemed to receive any of the services offered in the Timebank. Or you can request what you need! Maybe you’re looking for a clown for your kid’s birthday party? or someone to show you how to use your new laptop? The opportunities are many! WEC is starting Timebank Raglan to help knit together our community, strengthen our skill base and create new opportunities. If you want to know more, stop into our centre or become a member tonight.... (If you have a laptop, bring it!)

OPINION: Thoughts on ANZAC by Ian McKissack The  major  emphasis  on  Anzac  Day  is  the  joint  military  effort  by  the  combined  Australian  and  New  Zealand  forces  at  the  Gallipoli  landing,  and  a  sense  of  comradeship  that  arose  under  such  extreme  circumstances. Reading  a  book  from  the  Raglan  Library  by  an  Australian soldier who was at Gallipoli brought home  to me the wider message, the horror and waste of war. It  is a lesson the world seems to learn so slowly with the  .3#"%#"*"7-%"N6.8,"1%3(%K#6U%67&%E(<567'1-67A%*37?'*-1% with dubious chances of long term positive effects. We tend to think of Gallipoli primarily in terms of  the hard fought landing and battle to reach the heights.  K7%I@3%S",,%67&%T6*:J%-5"%6+-53#%-5#391%13."%&3+2-%37%

whether this was the intended best point for the assault.  Even  after  having  attained  the  area  above  the  cliff  slopes, the troops dug into trenches facing the Turkish  troops who had dug into their trenches. For  nine  months  this  static  situation  dragged  on  with  a  steady  increase  of  casualties.  It  was  a  mirror  '.6<"% 3(% -5"% 38831'7<% -#"7*5% ,'7"1% 37% G#"7*5% )",&1% where  the  Germans  were  the  enemy  and  immense  casualties were also occurring. The phrase ‘lest we forget’ should refer not only to  those who gave their lives, but also to the bad decisions  and misguided stubbornness that often squanders lives  in unnecessary battles.
