Inside

FROM THE EDITOR’S DESK GOOD ON the district council for taking steps to stop companies illegally taking water from roadside hydrants (see page 1). An eagle eyed resident spotted such a thing and alerted the Selwyn Times last week, and she’s right on the button: Our precious water supply is being tapped into by some thirsty for more profit. Police continue to make inquiries into the brutal attack on a 15-year-old in Rolleston – the one where his head was held under water while others chanted “drown him, drown him”. People have been interviewed and all police are saying at the moment is inquiries are continuing. All complaints have now been dropped against West Melton under-14.5 rugby coach Amanda Tomlinson who got into strife last season (see page 7). Commonsense has prevailed. – Barry Clarke
