A mysterious masquerade ball on Saturday night as the Mossburn Community centre will raise money for Plunket in Lumsden and Mossburn.  For the past 6 years or so, the plunket ball raises enough money so volunteers don't have organize any other major fundraisers during the year. Vanessa Hamilton is one of the organizers.

Pike River; the verdict; more on the insurance go slow in Christchurch and why this has left builders out of work and afraid to speak out, allegedly. Where are you more productive, at work or at home? the big re-opening of the Madeleine McCann case, the woman who was offended by "kia ora", the Labour party promotion of women to parliament at the expense of men - just a suggestion at this stage. And May-September romances - who's to know how they will turn out?
