Rowdy party buses and traffic taking away our peace
I admire the New Zealand government for not allowing electric bikes to spoil the beauty and serenity of the peaceful Tongariro National Park, a smoke signaller says.
Frequent customers of the Land Division of the Ministry of Justice may not be thrilled with the recently-announced decision to close the doors on Tuesdays while Land Division staff are in “training”, a smoke signaller observes.
There are so many contenders for Driver of the Week, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for the smoke-signalling judge of the contest to make a decision. However, the winner – or winners, this time are the local pair on a motorbike who rode around the seawall on Sunday evening as it was getting dark, way, way over the speed limit – and with the headlight turned off. Oh, and there were no safety helmets in sight.
News that the Justice ministry is planning to pay new prison warden recruits even less than previously doesn’t bode well for any positive changes within the prison system, another smoke signaller says. “People who are underpaid, are far less likely to do a good job than those who are paid well and fairly. Commissioner of Police please take note.”
“Regarding the article in CI News about an abandoned car on the main road at Tupapa, police said they failed to reach the relatives of the car owner on number provided,” a smoke signaller says. “This is a small island, so why didn’t they just go and look for that person. Problem solved. I just hate all the silly comments they make in the newspaper.”
