Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

Mitch and I have mutual friends in the area and no doubt the Ngunguru - Tutukaka community will be over-joyed that their persistence has coincided with commonsense. The thought of subdivisions and houses or apartments being built on such an unspoilt - not to mention precarious and unstable - spit had every possibility of occurring as the Council seemed to be hamstrung by the developers.
