Flouride PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 03 July 2006

Ashburton District councillors debated the fluoride issue at their meeting on Thursday, without once touching on whether or not fluoridated water supplies were a good thing.

Instead, the issue was how to get a true reading on public opinion.

Ideas tossed around were consultation through a special submission process, a telephone survey of 400 residents or a full referendum of people on all the district’s water supplies except Methven.

A spate of wilful damage over the past month may force one of Ashburton’s smaller sports clubs to go into recess.

Windows in the Waireka Croquet Club’s new pavilion in Philip Street have been broken on four separate occasions over the past month.

Club captain Raylene Phillips said the $1000 excess on the club’s insurance was more than could be afforded while debentures on the building were still being paid off.

Crews from the district council’s reserves department are busy all around town on a post-snow cleanup that is expected to take at least two months.

Parks and recreation manager David Askin said damage was far worse than after the 2002 storm, and many trees that were damaged then were just starting to recover. In Chalmers Avenue damage to some flowering plums had been so bad they had been totally removed.

Just 48 hours before Mid Canterbury's big chill arrived, a young Methven farming couple arrived back in New Zealand from a scholarship to Chile, where they studied the dairy industry in a warm climate.

Helen and Craig Elliott were one of six couples to receive the 15-day farm business scholarship at the Dairy Excellence Awards in Rotorua on May 19 and flew out to Chile on May 30. They were winners of the farm-owner section of the competition, which this year has been extended to give it more of an emphasis on managers.
