Dear Â Editor, I Â would Â like Â to Â express Â my Â disgust Â and Â concern Â about Â an Â incident Â that Â happened Â last Â Friday Â around Â 4pm Â at Â the Â Kopua Â skate Â bowl. During Â clean Â up Â works Â at Â the Â bmx Â track, Â Hayden Â and Â :D\QH 5REEV IURP 5DJODQ Earthmovers Â were Â suddenly Â verbally Â abused Â by Â a Â group Â of Â 20 Â young Â people Â between Â 8 Â and Â 16 Â years Â old. Hayden Â and Â Wayne Â were Â called Â all Â sorts Â of Â names, Â even Â threatened, Â apparently Â because Â of Â the Â dust Â created Â by Â the Â clean Â up Â works. Most Â concerning Â about Â this Â incident Â is Â that Â a Â couple Â of Â these Â youngsters Â were Â seen Â drinking Â alcoholic Â drinks. Also Â not Â a Â single Â adult Â
was Â present Â at Â the Â time Â of Â the Â incident. I Â believe Â this Â is Â completely Â unacceptable Â and Â that Â these Â youngsters Â responsible Â for Â this Â incident Â should Â come Â forward Â and Â sincerely Â apologize. Also Â in Â return Â they Â could Â KHOS ZLWK ÂżQLVKLQJ RII WKH bmx Â track Â by Â putting Â the Â mulch Â on Â the Â sides Â of Â Â the Â start Â hill Â and Â jumps. Â This Â whole Â project Â has Â been Â completed Â without Â any Â SURÂżW DW DOO VR LWÂśV UHDOO\ VDG to Â see Â the Â disrespect Â from Â those Â ones Â who Â the Â track Â has Â been Â made Â for. 3ROLFH KDYH EHHQ QRWLÂżHG of Â this Â incident.

Course offers comprehensive insight Asphalt now laid on Bow street into â€˜world of Maoriâ€™ A Â comprehensive Â course Â or Â wananga Â embracing Â the Â world Â of Â Maori Â tradition Â and Â protocol Â is Â set Â to Â be Â held Â in Â Raglan Â under Â the Â tutelage Â of Â prominent Â local Â kaumatua Â Russell Â Riki Â who Â says Â the Â time Â has Â come Â to Â tell Â the Â stories Â of Â his Â people. Working Â with Â the Â newly Â established Â Wahangaoterangi Â Trust, Â Russell Â will Â hand Â down Â generations Â of Â oral Â tradition Â including Â Maori Â faith, Â te Â reo Â or Â Maori Â language, Â waiata Â or Â singing Â and Â Maori Â history Â gleaned Â from Â his Â life Â as Â a Â spiritual Â leader Â â€“ Â a Â role Â for Â which Â he Â was Â groomed Â from Â birth. â€œMy Â grandparents Â took Â me Â from Â my Â mother Â when Â I Â was Â less Â than Â two Â hours Â old Â and Â raised Â me,â€? Â Russell Â said Â of Â his Â upbringing Â in Â the Â tradition Â of Â a Â chieftain. Â â€œAnd Â I Â was Â never Â allowed Â to Â speak Â English Â at Â home Â until Â I Â was Â 14.â€? Marae Â protocol, Â tangi Â and Â blessings Â â€“ Â which Â are Â now Â part Â of Â Russellâ€™s Â daily Â work Â in Â support Â of Â iwi Â â€“ Â will Â be Â covered Â on Â the Â Pupuru Â te Â ao Â Maori Â course, Â as Â will Â the Â importance Â of Â Papatuanuku Â or Â gardening Â DQGKLLNDRUÂżVKLQJWRWKH0DRUL way Â of Â life. Â Â Russell Â and Â course Â co-Â
ordinator Â Louise Â Middlemiss Â expect Â the Â six-Âweek Â wananga Â â€“ Â which Â is Â being Â offered Â to Â Raglan Â ÂżUVW Âą WR DSSHDO WR D ÂłEURDGÂ´ range Â of Â people Â from Â tourists Â to Â locals, Â Maori Â and Â non-ÂMaori Â alike. Â They Â have Â structured Â the Â weekly Â evening Â sessions Â at Â 5DJODQ 7RZQ +DOO WR ÂłÂżW LQWR peopleâ€™s Â lifestylesâ€?, Â though Â exact Â dates Â have Â yet Â to Â be Â set. Â Â Louise Â says Â the Â course Â is Â an Â opportunity Â for Â people Â who Â want Â to Â feel Â more Â comfortable Â with Â Maori Â protocol. The Â course Â is Â entitled Â Pupuru Â te Â ao Â Maori Â â€“ Â translated Â as Â Embrace Â the Â world Â of Â Maori Â â€“ Â and Â Louise Â says Â it Â will Â see Â Maori Â beliefs Â taught Â by Â the Â well-Ârespected Â kaumatua Â whose Â ancestry Â connects Â him Â to Â the Â wider Â Tainui Â region Â and Â other Â waka Â throughout Â the Â country. Russellâ€™s Â west Â coast Â iwi, Â Ngati Â Tahinga Â and Â Ngati Â Mahanga, Â means Â he Â liaises Â comfortably Â with Â both Â tribes. Â Â Recently, Â for Â instance, Â he Â conducted Â a Â blessing Â at Â Raglan Â Museum Â where Â the Â two Â shared Â common Â ground. Â The Â blessing Â of Â items Â destined Â for Â display Â was Â part Â of Â a Â welcome Â to Â the Â Bird Â family Â who Â farmed Â for Â years Â across Â the Â harbour Â at Â Te Â Akau Â and Â donated Â WKHLUÂżQDOFROOHFWLRQRIDUWHIDFWV including Â historically Â important Â moa Â bones, Â to Â the Â museum. Â
Raglanâ€™s Â main Â street, Â Bow Â Street, Â has Â had Â Â asphalt Â laid Â in Â time Â for Â the Â busy Â Christmas Â and Â New Â Year Â holiday Â season. Bow Â Street Â was Â recently Â resealed, Â and Â while Â the Â contractor Â carried Â out Â the Â job Â as Â required, Â a Â new Â surface Â was Â laid Â for Â the Â holiday Â period Â after Â requests Â from Â the Â Raglan Â community, Â Â and Â pressure Â from Â Ward Â Councillor Â Clint Â Baddeley Â and Â the Â Raglan Â Community Â Board.
Kaumatua Russell Riki (foreground) with members of the Bird family during a blessing outside Raglan Museum Russell, Â who Â was Â schooled Â at Â Waikaretu Â north Â of Â Te Â Akau, Â found Â it Â an Â honour Â to Â see Â the Â taonga Â or Â treasures Â laid Â in Â their Â last Â resting Â place. The Â 52-Âyear Â old Â â€“ Â who Â is Â linked Â on Â his Â fatherâ€™s Â side Â to Â Maori Â chiefs Â as Â far Â back Â as Â Tohunga Â Wahangaoterangi, Â the Â Matua Â of Â known Â Chief Â Wetini Â Mahikai Â Wahanga, Â whose Â headstone Â stands Â in Â the Â cemetery Â beside Â Poihakena Â Marae Â â€“ Â has Â generations Â of Â history Â to Â call Â on. Â He Â has Â taught Â on Â marae Â up Â and Â down Â the Â country, Â including Â wananga Â classes Â locally Â at Â Poihakena Â where Â he Â was Â based Â for Â three Â years Â in Â the Â mid Â â€˜90s. â€œI Â want Â to Â teach,â€? Â says Â Russell, Â â€œI Â like Â the Â language, Â the Â culture Â ...itâ€™s Â time Â to Â tell Â (my) Â stories.â€? Russellâ€™s Â seven Â forefathers Â all Â
married Â tribally Â but Â â€œI Â broke Â the Â beadâ€?, Â he Â admits. He Â rebelled Â and Â ran Â away Â from Â Maoridom Â early Â on, Â marrying Â a Â European Â more Â than Â 30 Â years Â ago Â and Â together Â raising Â a Â large Â family. He Â says Â he Â is Â proud Â now, Â through Â his Â children, Â to Â have Â bridged Â the Â gap Â between Â two Â cultures. To Â register Â interest Â in Â the Â wananga, Â contact Â Louise Â Middlemiss, Â ph Â 825 Â 5889. Â Cost Â per Â person Â is Â $240 Â for Â the Â weekly Â 4hr Â sessions Â over Â six Â weeks Â at Â Raglan Â Town Â Hall. Â For Â those Â who Â prefer, Â a Â free Â monthly Â marae-Âbased Â wananga Â â€“ Â Te Â Puawaitanga Â te Â reo Â Maori Â or Â The Â blossoming Â of Â the Â Maori Â language Â â€“ Â will Â be Â offered Â once Â funding Â is Â obtained Â next Â year.

Raglan businesses overwhelmingly oppose seabed mining proposals The Â Raglan Â Chamber Â of Â Commerce Â last Â week Â announced Â its Â support Â for Â KASM, Â after Â its Â members Â responded Â to Â an Â email Â survey.

Â If Â our Â seabed Â or Â foreshore Â is Â damaged Â it Â will Â ruin Â that Â market.â€? Â â€œIn Â Raglan, Â business Â and Â the Â environment Â are Â inextricably Â linked. Â Our Â full Â board Â supports Â KASMâ€™s Â aims Â and Â itâ€™s Â passive Â protest Â of Â the Â matters Â at Â hand.â€? Â She Â added, Â â€œWe Â already Â have Â major Â erosion Â around Â our Â coastline. Â Where Â mining Â has Â occurred Â in Â New Â Zealand Â and Â overseas, Â it Â has Â adversely Â affected Â the Â surf Â breaks Â and Â caused Â further Â erosion. Â This Â would Â be Â disastrous Â for Â our Â community Â and Â would Â undoubtedly Â impact Â on Â business.â€? Â It Â wasnâ€™t Â all Â about Â the Â
money Â though, Â stated Â Ms. Â Philp. Â â€œWe Â have Â major Â concerns Â about Â the Â impact Â on Â the Â endangered Â Mauiâ€™s Â dolphin Â of Â which Â there Â are Â only Â 55 Â left. Â Not Â everything Â can Â be Â measured Â in Â economic Â terms. Â While Â we Â are Â a Â business Â organisation, Â we Â will Â not Â promote Â business Â at Â the Â expense Â of Â the Â environment Â or Â the Â community Â of Â which Â weâ€™re Â a Â part.â€œ Â Another Â local Â businessman, Â Harry Â Hill, Â is Â commencing Â an Â independent Â study Â into Â the Â HFRQRPLF EHQHÂżWV WKH WRZQ receives Â from Â its Â world Â famous Â point Â breaks;Íž Â a Â survey Â that Â may Â EHFRPHKLJKO\LQĂ€XHQWLDOLQWKH wrangle Â ensuing Â between Â those Â west Â coast Â towns Â that Â believe Â they Â may Â accrue Â some Â short Â WHUP EHQHÂżWV IURP WKH PLQLQJ plans, Â and Â those Â that Â would Â only Â stand Â to Â lose.

Â His Â approach Â involves Â two Â separate Â questionnaires, Â one Â for Â local Â business Â and Â another Â for Â visitors Â to Â the Â town.

On Â a Â rainy Â Thursday Â lunchtime, Â Raglan Â Area Â Schoolâ€™s Â art Â room Â is Â a Â hub Â of Â activity. Â The Â academic Â year Â is Â winding Â down Â but Â Jeanette Â McDonnellâ€™s Â students Â are Â still Â busy, Â working Â on Â paintings, Â sketching Â and Â design. Â Due Â to Â the Â small Â size Â of Â the Â school Â this Â is Â a Â multi-Âlevel Â class, Â where Â resources Â are Â sometimes Â a Â little Â limited. Â â€œWe Â canâ€™t Â offer Â all Â the Â arts,â€? Â says Â Jeanette. Â â€œSo Â we Â have Â to Â be Â quite Â creative Â in Â how Â we Â run Â the Â programme.â€? Â Nevertheless Â the Â talent Â and Â enthusiasm Â is Â clear Â to Â see Â -Â Â take Â a Â walk Â through Â the Â school Â reception Â area Â at Â present Â and Â youâ€™ll Â see Â the Â groupâ€™s Â folio Â boards Â currently Â on Â display. Â Hereâ€™s Â a Â sample Â of Â some Â of Â the Â Level Â Two Â studentâ€™s Â work, Â and Â the Â inspiration Â behind Â it.
MADDISON Â GEROS Theme: Â The Â way Â life Â is Â and Â the Â way Â the Â human Â body Â works. Media: Â Acrylic, Â pencil, Â oil, Â ink Â and Â fabric. Favourite Â artists: Â Banksy Â and Â Shane Â Cotton Â (New Â Zealand Â contemporary Â painter).
MATTHEW Â BAITSON Media: Â Photography. Â Lots Â of Â slow-Âshutter Â speed Â shots Â and Â close-Â ups Â to Â show Â texture. Â Favourite Â photographer: Â Terry Â Richardson. Â It Â just Â seems Â like Â heâ€™s Â having Â a Â lot Â of Â fun.
JAIMEE Â STEVENS Theme: Â The Â Raglan Â environment. Â I Â wanted Â to Â show Â how Â beautiful Â the Â little Â things Â are Â that Â you Â walk Â past Â each Â day. Media: Â Photography. Â Lots Â of Â close-Â KHUSBU Â PATEL Theme: Â First Â it Â was Â going Â to Â be Â up Â shots Â and Â experimentation Â with Â based Â on Â PokĂŠmon, Â then Â it Â became Â light. Â more Â about Â children Â and Â how Â they Â change. Media: Â Watercolour, Â acrylic, Â pastel Â and Â chalk Â pastel. Favourite Â artist: Â Misery Â (New Â Zealand Â street Â artist Â and Â designer Â Tanya Â Thompson).
Te Akau School : Doors opened in 1913
A Â major Â celebration Â is Â approaching Â for Â the Â Te Â Akau Â community Â with Â its Â one Â and Â only Â school Â about Â to Â turn Â 100-Âyears Â old. When Â Te Â Akau Â School Â opened Â its Â doors Â in Â 1913, Â pupils Â walked Â or Â rode Â to Â school Â on Â horseback Â and Â were Â taught Â in Â a Â classroom Â built Â of Â cabbage Â tree Â slabs Â and Â lined Â with Â sacks. Now Â with Â three Â teachers Â and Â 37 Â students, Â the Â school Â has Â much Â bigger Â and Â better Â facilities Â and Â is Â still Â the Â heart Â of Â the Â community. Â Â Â Being Â located Â in Â what Â many Â would Â consider Â a Â remote Â location Â has Â at Â times Â left Â the Â school Â facing Â dwindling Â pupil Â numbers, Â low Â JRYHUQPHQW IXQGLQJ GLIÂżFXOWLHV attracting Â teachers, Â and Â ultimately, Â the Â threat Â of Â closure.

100 Â years, Â itâ€™s Â certainly Â well Â worth Â celebrating. Â â€œEspecially Â when Â you Â look Â around Â and Â see Â the Â desolate Â schoolyards Â in Â a Â lot Â of Â rural Â areas Â these Â days.â€? Part Â of Â organising Â the Â event Â has Â involved Â spreading Â the Â word Â to Â former Â staff Â and Â pupils, Â many Â of Â whom Â have Â long Â since Â left Â the Â district. Â Money Â has Â needed Â to Â be Â raised Â for Â the Â celebrations, Â some Â of Â which Â has Â come Â from Â a Â local Â â€˜stock Â driveâ€™, Â where Â local Â farmers Â sell Â sheep Â and Â cattle Â and Â donate Â the Â proceeds. Â The Â Centenary Â Committee Â has Â also Â set Â its Â sights Â on Â restoring Â the Â community Â hall, Â which Â stands Â next Â to Â and Â is Â used Â by Â the Â school Â on Â a Â regular Â basis. Â Â Vested Â to Â the Â community Â in Â the Â 1920s, Â the Â building Â has Â lost Â some Â of Â its Â former Â glory Â and Â giving Â it Â a Â makeover Â has Â become Â part Â of Â the Â centenary Â celebrations, Â Jackson Â says. Â Â â€œIt Â was Â a Â suggestion Â right Â from Â the Â start Â that Â we Â should Â use Â this Â as Â an Â opportunity Â to Â bring Â some Â
outside Â money Â in Â to Â help Â restore Â the Â community Â hall. Â â€œOtherwise Â the Â thing Â will Â become Â an Â eyesore Â and Â a Â health Â and Â safety Â issue. Â So Â we Â decided Â to Â save Â it Â while Â we Â can.â€? The Â hall Â has Â already Â been Â given Â a Â new Â roof, Â thanks Â to Â a Â generous Â $10,000 Â grant Â from Â the Â Sir Â John Â Logan Â Campbell Â Trust. Â Â The Â Te Â Akau Â School Â Centenary Â Committee Â is Â warmly Â welcoming Â all Â who Â have Â had Â an Â association Â with Â the Â school Â over Â the Â years Â to Â come Â and Â celebrate Â on Â 2nd Â March. Â The Â day Â will Â commence Â with Â a Â powhiri Â at Â the Â school Â entrance Â at Â 10:00am, Â before Â a Â jam-Âpacked Â schedule Â of Â activities Â such Â as Â decade Â photos, Â a Â performance Â from Â current Â pupils, Â school Â tour, Â sausage Â sizzle, Â music Â jam Â session, Â and Â games. Celebrations Â will Â later Â move Â on Â to Â the Â Te Â Akau/Waingaro Â Community Â Complex Â where Â an Â evening Â dinner Â and Â dance Â will Â see Â the Â party Â out.

Pets on holiday: The holiday season is rapidly approaching, and for those of us with pets there are a few extra things to consider to decrease the likelihood of misadventure for locals and tourists during the summer holidays. Vaccinations: Most boarding kennels and catteries require pets to be fully vaccinated and boosted annually. For cats WKLVLVDLQYDFFLQHWRSURWHFWDJDLQVWÂ´FDWĂ XÂľDQGGRJV get vaccinated against parvo, distemper, hepatitis and lepto as part of the core vaccine, and a kennel cough vaccine is required for boarding kennels. Taking your pets on holiday increases their risk of exposure to potentially lethal viruses so vaccinations should always be kept up-to-date. 6ZDOORZHG RU HPEHGGHG Ă€VK KRRNV This is a common SUREOHPLQSHWVZKRVHRZQHUVHQMR\UHFUHDWLRQDOĂ€VKLQJEXW sometimes pets will pick them up while exploring. Pets can swallow them while scavenging bait or get them embedded in the face or skin while at beaches or wharves, particularly at low tide. If this happens we recommend a trip to the local vet clinic, because if the barb is embedded they are very GLIĂ€FXOWWRUHPRYHZLWKRXWVRPHIRUPRIDQDHVWKHWLFDQGWKH FRUUHFWWHFKQLTXH6ZDOORZHGĂ€VKKRRNVKDYHDIDUJUHDWHU risk factor, and should always be seen by a vet. Overheating: With summer comes the peril of hot cars and abandoned animals. All animals are prone to heat stress if left unattended in hot cars, and this also applies to dogs tied on the back of utes. Signs of hyperthermia (overheating) in dogs are hyperventilation (excessive panting), bright pink gums and increased rectal temperature. Care must be taken not to overcool these animals, and a trip to the vet clinic for a check up is recommended. NEVER leave animals in hot cars! 'RJĂ€JKWV Over the holidays we treat an increased number RIGRJVLQMXUHGLQĂ€JKWVPRVWRIZKLFKRFFXURQWKHEHDFK These range from major, life threatening injuries, to less serious wounds requiring pain relief and antibiotics. Deep puncture wounds will often not be very visible or bleed much, but will commonly result in infection and should be treated as soon as possible. As a precaution, dogs should be kept on leads in public places or when other dogs are around.

Making Waikato’s waterways safe There are more than 70,000 people who go boating in the region each year and Waikato Regional Council is responsible for setting and enforcing some of the boating rules to make sure our waterways are safe for everybody. We’ve been reviewing these rules for the Waikato and from Monday 17 December until Friday 22 February we’ll be seeking public submissions on the proposed Navigation Safety Bylaw 2013. We are particularly keen to get feedback on a proposed rule change which will make it compulsory for lifejackets to be worn on vessels of six metres or less in length while the vessel is underway.
REDUCE THE RISK The Waikato region has the highest number of fatal and serious road crashes in New Zealand and the tragedy is that over the holiday season this toll is likely to increase.
Even one drink makes you three times more likely to crash. Reduce the risk – don’t drink and drive. And if you’re heading away on a summer holiday road trip, consider the safety of you and your family by making sure your car is roadworthy.
Waikato Regional Council leads the regional road safety education group, working in conjunction with the NZTA, NZ Police, ACC and local councils.
To get to your destination safely:
We recommend following these tips if you’re hosting a Christmas party to ensure your friends and family return home safely:
The purpose of the bylaw is to provide for safe use within all navigable waters of the Waikato region, excluding Lake Taupō which is under the Department of Internal Affairs jurisdiction.
• serve substantial food and have nonalcoholic drinks available
The bylaw impacts recreational activities, including power boating, kayaking, yachting, jetskiing and swimming.
• keep an eye on everyone, especially young people
Visit our website for more information on the bylaw review and to complete the online submission form.
• arrange transport, ensure they have a sober driver or let them stay overnight.
• prepare your vehicle – check your tyre pressure and condition, fluid levels, lights, and clean your windscreen • prepare yourself – be rested before a long drive, plan the trip so you share the driving and take regular breaks to minimise fatigue • ensure children are correctly restrained in an approved car seat • check your load security and trailer coupling locks when towing a boat, trailer or caravan.
COUNCIL HOLIDAY HOURS
Life’s a beach in Raglan!
Waikato Regional Council oﬃces will be closed from 5 pm on Friday 21 December 2012 and will reopen at 8 am on Thursday 3 January 2013. While our oﬃces will be closed over this period, you can call our freephone 0800 800 401 any time to: • report air or water pollution • report unsafe water activities in or on a river, lake or harbour • make a general enquiry or information request.

Sign of the times in Raglan Signs designed by students from Te Uku primary school have just been erected near the dune at Te Kopua in Raglan and urge beachgoers to protect new plantings by using the provided access ways.
developed by the Waikato District Council and Waikato Regional Council’s Beachcare programme to remove the exotic trees and replace them with more appropriate native plant species that would help support local biodiversity and improve the natural character of the area.
The students planted 300 native trees and 1700 native dune plants in September to help restore the dune ecosystem at Raglan’s Te Kopua domain.
Tree species planted in the back dune area include pohutukawa, karaka and karo, while native dune plants pingao, pohuehue and wiwi have been planted seaward of these trees.
Following their planting day, the students decided to create educational signage for beach users. Council staﬀ were so impressed by the artwork and messages that four were picked and made into oﬃcial signs that have now been installed around the plantings.
The plants will help to build the dunes seaward and reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion.
This dune system had been highly modified in the past and planted with exotic poplar trees that were starting to die. A plan was
Top and right: Two of the four drawings selected to appear on signs near Raglan dunes to educate beachgoers. Left: Students from Te Uku primary school planted natives at Te Kopua domain which will reduce the risk of coastal flooding and erosion.
BLOOMING HOT The forecasters reckon this summer will be hot and dry. These are the perfect conditions for triggering outbreaks of blue-green algae, making it unsafe for people to drink untreated water and to swim, boat or jetski. Waikato Regional Council will again increase water testing over summer, looking for signs of the potentially toxic algae in our waterways. And the results will be available online so you can keep up to date with the latest information. We also have handy water saving hints, so you can help to preserve this valuable natural resource.
One stop eﬄuent shop An expo being held next March will provide a one stop shop for dairy farmers wanting to bring their eﬄuent system up to code. Waikato Regional Council, supported by DairyNZ, will hold its third annual Dairy Eﬄuent Expo at Mystery Creek Events Centre between 9 am and 3.30 pm on Tuesday 26 March.
SAVE THIS DATE In March Waikato Regional Council will be calling for submissions on the Draft Annual Plan 2013/14. A special edition of Your Waikato will be arriving in your letterbox about the same time with a summary of the key issues for you to consider. Don’t miss out! Register to receive Your Waikato via email.
Many dairy farmers are making significant investments in their eﬄuent management systems to protect the environment and to get the best value from the nutrients in their eﬄuent. The expo oﬀers an opportunity to talk to the suppliers of all the products and services farmers need to ensure their investment provides them with the best result for their farm. Already about 30 exhibitors are locked in for the day-long event, providing farmers with a good opportunity to get all the information needed to bring their eﬄuent system up to code. Environmental farming systems manager Alan Campbell said council staﬀ will be available to advise on the rules and compliance requirements and seminars will run all day on a wide range of hot topics for eﬄuent management. “Farmers need peace of mind that their eﬄuent system can comply with the rules 365 days a year and the Eﬄuent Expo is a must for anyone who isn’t sure.”

Dear Â Editor Dancers Â shouldnâ€™t Â need Â to Â speak. Well Â she Â has Â done Â it Â again! Â Patti Â Mitchley Â is Â a Â true Â treasure Â of Â Raglan. â€œWe Â Are Â Hereâ€? Â was Â an Â awe Â inspiring Â culmination Â of Â another Â years Â work Â by Â many Â people, Â but Â of Â course Â particularly Â Patti. I Â watched Â these Â beautiful Â children Â dance Â and Â express Â themselves Â -Â Â an Â extension Â of Â Patti Â herself. I Â saw Â the Â little Â Purehu Â Moths Â watching Â the Â big Â girls Â with Â dreams Â in Â their Â eyes. I Â saw Â the Â big Â girls Â gently Â encouraging Â the Â young Â ones. I Â saw Â the Â tears Â in Â everyoneâ€™s Â eyes Â at Â the Â end Â when Â we Â witnessed Â the Â spreading Â of Â wings Â DVWKHELJJLUOVSUHSDUHWRWDNHĂ€LJKW Our Â town Â dance Â teacher Â is Â not Â only Â showing Â our Â children Â some Â moves,she Â is Â helping Â to Â develop Â the Â young Â ones Â throughout Â their Â childhood Â making Â them Â into Â strong, Â FRQÂżGHQWDQGJURXQGHGDGXOWV This Â year Â even Â showcased Â one Â of Â Pattiâ€™s Â students Â own Â choreography, Â which Â I Â must Â say Â is Â world Â class. Many Â people Â donâ€™t Â have Â any Â idea Â how Â much Â goes Â into Â a Â production Â like Â this. Patti Â Mitchley Â puts Â her Â whole Â being Â into Â it, Â her Â heart Â and Â her Â soul. I Â am Â not Â alone Â when Â I Â say Â thank Â you Â Patti Â -Â Â We Â Love Â You. Completely.
