from the editor’s desk OUR ARTICLE on problems at the Heathcote Valley Community Centre two weeks ago may have been the kick up the backside the powers that be needed. On page 3 today, we reveal city council staff have met with association chairman Lewis Low and it looks like a solution is in the wind. Problems at the $860,000 Heathcote Valley Community Centre should be ironed out before winter. But the litmus test will come as to who actually pays for solving the problems, and, unfortunately, the council has vaguely suggested the association may have to play a part. So we may have to give them another kick up the proverbial to get a good result for a hard-working community association. Barry Clarke
