Q: Why do you think it’s important to recycle?

“Because if we don’t recycle it’s going to end up all over the world and it will never go away.”
“So we can keep the sea animals safe, because sometimes the stuff that is at the dump is blown into the ocean.”
“So we are not just chucking our rubbish anywhere and we are reusing it again.”
“So we don’t waste everything we use. It’s good to reuse things and not throw them away.”
“Because we can keep the world clean, if we just take care.”
Lilac Richards Miramar Central School “I think it is important because if everything was chucked in the bin, nothing would break down and it would be left lying everywhere.”

Sad about the flag From a marketing perspective, retaining the existing flag is a shame. I saw the new alternative as a perfect blend of old and new, adding a wider base of international recognition. With the greatest respect to the RSA they took the wrong viewpoint given that our ability to change and go forwards is a direct result of the outcome our old soldiers bravely helped facilitate.

Unconvinced Dear Ed, I and many others remain unconvinced that the tree was a safety issue as Vicki McLaren, Council’s City Housing manager indicates (refer to CSN March 31). We believe this, as the tree had not posed a safety problem
all of its life there alongside the existing driveway and the proposed driveway goes along this same corridor. Given this, we believe there would have been a way to accommodate the tree and maintain a safe environment for all. However,
council has not provided us any evidence by way of drawings and plans to show how this tree posed a safety issue and to what extent. This is a matter we have requested and we are still waiting. Just a day after the meeting which was held with
council to save the tree, where myself and other residents, 16 students from the neighboring Evans Bay Intermediate School and Councilors Free and Eagle attended, council had the tree cut down. We are shocked at this sudden action.
However, even now, if council can show that this tree is an unresolvable safety issue, it will convince us and help us to lay this important matter to rest. Fiona Hoang Kilbirnie
